Participation Centres

Run, Jump and Throw Centres are part of a national programme delivered in partnership between local authorities, schools and clubs. The programme delivers athletics as an extra-curricular school activity on a weekly basis, linking with the local athletics club.

The programme is aimed at children who have never taken part in an athletics programme and would like more experience before joining an affiliated athletics club. With a wide range of activities including all aspects of running, jumping and throwing - with links to approproate competitions - the Centres provide a chance for children and young athletes to participate in athletics all year round.
