With one month to go to the start of the Summer of World Athletics, official inspiration programme Team Personal Best is in full swing and growing with more than 100 events signed up.

Having already held a host of inspiring events, any athletics or running-themed activity can get involved between now and the end of September.

The World Para Athletics Championships (14-23 July) and IAAF World Championships London 2017 (4-13 August) will be the biggest sporting event in the world in the 2017.  It is the first time ever that both Championships are being held in the same city in the same summer and the inspiration programme and Team Personal Best have been created to inspire anyone and everyone to get involved in grassroots athletics.


With one month to go to the Summer of World Athletics, anyone who submits an event HERE between now and Friday 30 June will be in with a chance of winning a special visit from IAAF World Championship bronze medallist Jenny Meadows.

Jenny Meadows said: “Athletics has been a part of my life for over two decades and this summer is the chance to celebrate everything great about the sport.

“The Summer of World Athletics is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, not just for elite athletes but for everyone else. Whether you are a novice or an expert, Team Personal Best is a fantastic programme encouraging people from all walks of life to play a part no matter how big or small. I look forward to heading along to an event this summer.”

For the first time ever both the World Para Athletics Championships and IAAF World Championships are being held in the same city in the same summer. The summer of World Athletics is the biggest event to be staged at the London Stadium since the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games with 30 sessions scheduled across 20 days.
