Final grant applications

The GCAN network is closing. Thank you for all your support, and please consider applying for a closing grant if you have a community-based running project. 

The GCAN committee has been considering the future need for the network, as it has been accessed less by clubs in recent years. We believe it has been a valuable local network for a number of years, but is now less used and has run its course. We believe that this is probably not bad news in itself, because we know that many athletics clubs have grown in membership since 2012 and are now able to provide things that were previously challenging, as well as the provision from England Athletics being broader.

We have the opportunity to disperse GCAN’s reserves, and are opening applications for grants of up to £1,000. These will be awarded to local (within GCAN’s current geographic reach) athletics-related groups for community-related athletics/running initiatives.
