Athletics Community Days
Host an event between 12-29 August 2012!
Your club is invited to host an Athletics Community Day. Hosting an event is the
chance for your club to become the heart of the local community during one of the
most exciting times our sport has ever seen. These weeks between the Olympic and Paralympic Games are the perfect chance for your club to ensure you can deliver a lasting legacy by engaging your community.
A Community Day will allow your club to give everyone, of all ages, the chance to try some athletics - but also have fun and socialise. The events will show people what sort of athletics they can get involved in, while also showing them the fun, social, community side of athletics. This event is not just about new members but can bring the whole club together.
Community days could feature:
- Olympic themed challenges
- BBQs and refreshments
- Fun sport day races
- Parent and child races
- Have a go sessions
- Fundraising and games
- Can your club beat Mo Farah's 10,000m time as a group?
- Link with other sport clubs
- Bouncy Castles
- Tug of War
A Community Day can involve a range of activities that shows off all aspects of your club and engages the whole community.
