Inspiration Clubs announced
England Athletics and Team Personal Best are delighted to announce the Inspiration Clubs who will be leading the way in disability athletics and running this summer. The clubs are receiving a package of support and equipment to enhance their delivery of disability athletics and inclusive provision.
Clubs could apply for two packages; Ambassador or Kick Start - and for clubs who want to be recognised for existing work in this area but did not want to apply for a support package could instead apply for the use of Inspiration Club logo.
This year London will host the World Para Athletics Championships and the IAAF World Championships back to back for the first time in history. To celebrate the historic year of athletics in the UK, England Athletics have created Team Personal Best. Team Personal Best is the public facing brand of the London 2017 Inspiration Programme, which includes 11 different projects over 5 different strands: Disability, Community, Volunteers, Schools and International.
The Inspiration Clubs will be providing athletics and running opportunities throughout the summer by holding Para Athletics Inspiration Days for people with any impairment to come and try our sport. These will be friendly, inclusive and fun events to give anyone with a disability a chance to take part in athletics so come and have a go!
