Embrace the summer of athletics and submit your activity today

As part of London 2017’s inspiration programme, Team Personal Best will connect people excited by the IAAF World Championships and World Para Athletics Championships with track and field opportunities in their local community.

Team Personal Best calls on athletics and running clubs to invite their community to an athletics-themed activity over the summer and list them on www.teampersonalbest.org.

The activity could be something new or already planned and might be anything from a community fun run to an athletics-themed bake sale, or an athletics taster session to a volunteer open day.

For a limited time only, www.teampersonalbest.org is where anyone can register new and existing athletics or running activities – or activities with an athletics or running theme – taking place between now and the end of September. The website will be promoted by London 2017, England Athletics and partners like the BBC Get Inspired project throughout the summer of athletics.

If you already deliver activities with an athletics or running theme, this is your chance to promote them to a wider audience. Once you submit your activities at www.teampersonalbest.org you will also be in with a chance of being selected for an athlete, mascot or special guest visit and additional promotion of your activity.

Cambridge Harriers is one of the clubs that has been quick off the mark by joining Team Personal Best already and submitting their Annual Young Athlete Trials on to the Team Personal Best website.

Manchester Harriers and Athletics Club have also joined the celebration with their Manchester Mile.

So, whether you are looking for new members, trying to recruit new volunteers or simply just want to celebrate athletics in your club this summer, join www.teampersonalbest.org today and submit your events.

Participants are encouraged to use social media to share their personal best times – or any stories of achievement, no matter how big or small – with the hashtag #TeamPersonalBest.
