This year, the Summer of Athletics is coming to London as well as the World Para Athletics Championships and the IAAF World Championships. The Inspiration Programme is a great way to get communities and clubs together and host their very own athletics events. The aim of the Inspiration Programme is to encourage people to take part in grassroots athletics. The Inspiration Programme is a series of 11 projects, all of which are aimed at getting people to try athletics this summer. A great part of the Inspiration Programme is that the events aren’t limited to London; 2 of them will be international and fully funded by UK Athletics.
The Inspiration Programme encourages all clubs to get involved, whether you’re hosting an open event to the public or a closed event, Team Personal Best urges you to submit it to their website, to get the most traction possible and to spread the positive message of the Inspiration Programme.
London hosting both the World Para Athletics Championships as well as the IAAF World Championships back to back is a huge ordeal and we want to make the most of it in the athletics world. In previous years, we have aimed to get the public involved by taking part in activities to keep fit, from our run and talk event to many others. This year’s aim is to get the public to take part in grassroots athletics, do you think your club can help encourage your local community? Set up an event and post it to Team Personal Best!
