18th IAAF World Athletics Day

122 MEMBER FEDERATIONS SIGN-UP FOR 2013 IAAF WORLD ATHLETICS DAY

Now in its 18th year, the IAAF World Athletics Day, the sport’s annual worldwide festival of youth, is one of the busiest programmes of competitions in the Athletics calendar.

The IAAF World Athletics Day when it began in 1996, was exclusively planned for youngsters who were members of clubs affiliated to IAAF Member Federations but in recent years the scope of the project has broadened to include the participation of school children in team competitions. With the addition of this category, the IAAF World Athletics Day has become a complete and an important event which annually promotes our sport around the world.

The goal of the IAAF World Athletics Day is to firmly establish an important link between the youth, our sport, and environmental conservation.

The IAAF World Athletics Day 2013 takes place in May, preferably the weekend of Saturday 11 & Sunday 12 May.

HERE IN ST. KITTS & NEVIS, IT WILL BE CELEBRATED ON SATURDAY MAY 11. Registration for the meet can be done by clicking here.
