Athletics is a collection of sports that include running, jumping, throwing, and walking, with common competitions in track & field, road running, cross country running and race walking.
The simplicity of the competitions, and the lack of a need for expensive equipment, makes athletics one of the most commonly competed sports not only in the UK but across the globe.
Athletics is accessible for people of all ages, locations, gender or ability. Disability athletics is a growing area within the athletics sport, and participants can get involved in wheelchair racing, seated throws, amputee running and much more.
