It’s your time to make some exciting and energetic moments in one of the oldest sports events in the world – Track and Field. Athletics for all is on show, with anyone, of any ability or age, welcomed to be part of the action.The Festival of Athletics will be offering a selection of running, jumping and throwing events for all.  Those competing will have the opportunity to vs their fellow age group while refining their skills and meeting new friends. Make sure you keep an eye out for World Champions and Olympic/Paralympic hopefuls who will also be on show – how cool!Event selection and Registration will open soon.


Its time to get your teams together to compete in the Inaugural Team Challenge. Whose team will be rewarded with the golden cup?

There are 3 different challenges that your team can be part of:

  • Corporate Challenge – perfect for businesses, gyms and community groups to battle it out
  • School Challenge – your teammates from the same school will see which school comes out on top
  • Club Challenge – represent your club and showcase the skills you have learned

Teams will have 4 members each of any age, ability, or gender and will compete against all other teams in that category. Each team will be giving a bonus point at the start of the competition, based on the overall team age and ability. This helps equal out the playing field for a close and exciting challenge.

Events include Shot Put, Long Jump, 100 Sprint, 800-1000m (pending age) and a 60m Relay

For each event (apart from Relay), only 3 members of a team can compete, with the 4th  person designated as a volunteer official. This means everyone will have a go competing and volunteering. 

Teams will choose one of their fellow teammates results from each event that goes towards the team’s final score. Plan carefully though, as your performance can only be recorded once, across all events, that go towards your team’s points. All team member’s matter!
