    Feel like a champion for the 2017 IAAF World Athletics Championships

    For the last decade, London has been the hub of some of the best athletic competitions in the world.  Since the 2012 Olympic Games, we have hosted some of the most powerful and amazing athletes competing for titles and breaking records. This year, the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) is bringing the 2017 World Championships to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in the UK capital city of London.

    This will be the 16th competition for the IAAF World Championships, which have hosted thousands of the top track and field athletes from over 200 countries and will feature events from games like discus, pole vault, dashes, hurdles, and more.  The famous marathon, which is a total 26.2 miles, will begin and end at the Tower Bridge in central London and take runners throughout the capital’s most stunning and historical locations.  There will also be a ‘Festival of Race Walks’ on the Mall, at St James Park between Buckingham Palace and Admiralty Arch.  This will be held on the final day of the World Championships.  Sound good? Then see it for yourself and come to witness this historic event as the world’s best athletes compete for glory. Names like Allyson Felix, Laura Muir, Andre De Grasse, and Keni Harrison will be pushing their limits to not only win but to break records.  

    What’s on

    It will be a 10-day event, held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park from the 4th to 13th August 2017. Since the 2012 Olympics, the park has undergone major reconstruction to provide a closer and more comfortable experience.  It has also updated to include 4 new restaurants, 35 food and drink outlets, and exclusive corporate boxes. Tickets start at £20 for adults and £9.58 for children, thanks to the record-breaking 100m run of Usain Bolt, finishing the race at 9.58 seconds.
