London Strategy plan - 2012 and beyond

The London Strategy Plan for Athletics has been prepared following consultation with the London athletics clubs and endorsed by UK Athletics, England Athletics, LOCOG and the Mayor of London’s Office. This is a team effort and London already benefits from national strategies funded in particular by Sport England and McCains, which have together funded seven Athletic Networks in London – encouraging clubs and coaches to work more closely together for the benefit of the sport.  The London Strategy plan provides an essential review of the situation in London, and offers important suggestions for additional ‘acceleration’ activity that will make a big difference.  With the Olympics only two years away, this is an ideal time to invest in athletics in London and to ensure we reap the maximum rewards from the Games' legacy." 

The framework is set to achieve two main aims:
This plan seeks to build on the work already in place in a way that will allow London to take advantage of the long term benefits that the 2012 Games will bring to the city.  London Athletics (the London Regional Council of England Athletics) would like to thank everybody who has contributed to the formulation of the London Strategy Plan. Working together we now have to seize the opportunity to make the sport great in London.
