Team Personal Best

From May to September, we’ll be celebrating a memorable summer of Athletics by delivering a nationwide programme of athletics-themed events up and down the country.


This year, London will become the first ever city to host the World Para Athletics Championships and the IAAF World Championships over the same summer.

But before you reserve the armchair for July and August, this isn't just a spectator event. This involves you too! And you don't have to move like Mo Farah or get the wheels in motion like Hannah Cockroft to take part.

From May to September there will be a national celebration of athletics taking place around the country, and you're invited.

Here's how you can be part of the team.

Host an event

Calling all sports clubs, leisure centres, community groups and organisations from May to September, we're inviting you to spread the celebration up and down the land by holding an athletics-themed event of your own.

From family sports days to competition screening, bake sales to community open days, this is your chance to bring the global sports event of the year to your own back yard. And bring your community together in the process.

Simply add an event and you're in the home straight.

Grab your spot

We're adding new Team Personal Best events all the time – so keep checking to see what's going on near you, and let the organisers know you can come.
