Athletics can offer much to people of all ages and abilities. It is one of the most commonly competed sports in the world and it has the greatest variety of disciplines. With a history going back to the Ancient Olympic Games from 776 BCE, athletics encompasses such diverse sports as running, walking, jumping and throwing. Among these, you can choose the short, explosive events such as sprint, or focus on building up stamina in middle-distance running. You can also decide to run the long distance for an ultimate test of mental and physical endurance. Furthermore, you can compete in cross-country running in nature, fun park run or race walking. Perhaps you’d like to test your upper-body strength with a shot put, discus, javelin, hammer throw, or try out challenging pole vault? And if you can’t decide on a single event, combined events of decathlon (men) or heptathlon (women) might be just the right thing for you.
Our website provides an overview of some of the best athletics clubs in the UK. In addition, you will find important and useful advice on the best way to get started, depending on your age, preferences and expectations. Athletics offers something for everybody!
