Athletics and Para Athletics

Presenting Partner

With 59 medal events, including a fully integrated Para Sport programme, athletics will showcase feats of superhuman speed, strength, endurance and agility at Birmingham 2022. With events ranging from ten seconds to two days in duration, there will be no shortage of memorable moments.

Athletics at Birmingham 2022 will comprise a packed programme of events that are certain to keep viewers in the stadium and around the world gripped.

On the track, you can enjoy everything from the breathless excitement of the 100m sprint to the lung-busting intensity of the 10,000m, while the action will also hit the streets of Birmingham in the Games’ ultimate test of endurance, the marathon.

On the field, throwers of javelins, hammers, the discus and the shot will look to go the distance in their own battles for supremacy, while athletes will make a leap for a podium place in the long jump, triple jump, high jump and pole vault.

If that wasn’t enough, the multi-event decathlon and heptathlon will see athletes look to emerge victorious from a range of events, testing their capabilities to the very limit.

Previous Commonwealth Games Appearances

Regarded as the cornerstone of any Games, athletics has featured at every event since the Commonwealth Games began back in 1930.

The newly renovated Alexander Stadium will play host to athletics events.
