There were 10 shortlisted candidates for this award, who were named at the Manchester Sports Awards which took place at The Point at Old Trafford Cricket Ground. Jane was interviewed earlier this week ahead of the awards by BBC Radio Manchester to talk about the club as part of the awards process.
Jane says: “I am in absolute shock to have won. The other shortlisted nominees sounded fantastic and I didn’t think I stood a chance. I am truly grateful to be recognised in this way!”
As well as winning Coach of the Year, the #MileShyClub were again shortlisted in the Club of the Year category. The club has picked up three awards this year, the other two from the Trafford Sports Awards, but for us, this only compounds the success we feel every time one of our runners completes their first 5k. We love our club, and our members, and are thankful that these awards are reflecting our commitment to bringing the sport of running to everyone.
