"Let's Go While We're Young"


The other award presented at the SAAL Annual Dinner, was the "Ian Reddaway" Award.

The award takes its name from the former outstanding member of the SAAL, Ian 'Reddas' Reddaway. Reddas was one of those rare people that you sometimes find in an organisation, who makes everybody's experience of their sport better. He had a unique ability to genuinely celebrate the achievements of others and it was impossible to walk away from a conversation with him without smiling. One of the great features of our organisation is the sense of community that we have - and the contribution that Reddas made to it enriched us all.

Following his passing, the award formerly known as the "President's Award", was re-named in honour of Reddas.

The award is presented to the SAAL member whose contribution to the season and the sport best reflects the promotion of the objects of the SAAL. It is decided in consultation between the President and the SAAL Office.

Recognition of this year's recipient was overdue.

The "Ian Reddaway Award" for season 2016/17 went to Paul Young.

As a former athlete, coach, website administrator, race caller, event organiser, journalist, historian and junior race handicapper, Youngy's contribution to the SAAL and the sport of Pro Running has been enormous.

The hours that Youngy dedicates to the sport each season improve the product that we have. His role as junior race handicapper in particular, is a thankless and extremely difficult task. Youngy though, has brought a thoughtful and extremely diligent approach to it - as was to be expected by anybody who knows him!

Fittingly, the presentation of the "Ian Reddaway Award" to Paul Young on Friday night was very well-received by SAAL members.

The contribution of Paul Young to season 2016/17 went a long way to it being another season of strong growth for the SAAL and to placing the sport well for sustained development. It was great to see that recognised by everybody at the dinner on Friday night.

Thanks Youngy.

John LeRay

Well said BG - well deserved Youngy.
