The Gold Challenge is a unique opportunity for everyone to be a part of the London 2012 Legacy by taking on multiple Olympic and Paralympic sports and raising money for charity.
The Gold Challenge is passionate about encouraging everyone to participate in sport – irrespective of age, physical ability or locality, so as well as individuals, teams made up of work mates, colleagues and friends over 16 years old can take part in the Gold Challenge through special designed events such as the Track and Field Team Challenge. So if you want to try new sports, push to the next level or create the most extreme sports challenge – the Gold Challenge is for you!
A call to action
England Athletics are looking for clubs and/or Athletics Networks to become delivery partners for the Gold Challenge offering in athletics. As a delivery partner you would gain the opportunity to run Track and Field Team Challenge days or weekly short format team leagues for groups of new participants, primarily workplace teams, enabling them to try different athletic disciplines and be scored based on the time, height or distance they achieve.
The Gold Challenge, working with England Athletics, will supply you with the participants local to you and a delivery toolkit informing you of the competition format option rules and other ideas relating to the delivery model.
You would have the opportunity to generate revenue from the set fee participants pay, giving them a 3-4 hour experience of track and field.
If you are interested in the Gold Challenge and would like to find out more about how to become a delivery partner, please email Katie@goldchallenge.org for more information.
