High school coaches are on the frontlines of inspiring and mentoring young runners, helping to develop athletic talent and build character. Today, we begin accepting nominations for the 2014 Inspiring Coach of the Year Award, calling athletes and the running community to recognize and thank the coaches who have created lasting differences in their lives. You can find more information and the nomination form here.
"We want to wave the banner of these incredible coaches and reward them and their programs for the hours of dedication to our sport," said Team Brand Manager Steve DeKoker.
The winner of the award receives $10,000 in Brooks performance running gear and $2,500 in cash to help pay for team expenses. Finalists for the award receive $5,000 in gear and $500 cash. Brooks will select 25 finalists for the award in June and invite the social media community to vote for which coach they think deserves to be the Brooks 2014 Inspiring Coach of the Year. We will announce the winner in August.
