    What's it about?

    Come along to Costello Stadium and enjoy an exciting afternoon of quality athletics on Sunday 31 August!

    The festival will include a range of both track and field events in the mens and womens competitions.

    Athletes will descend upon Hull from across the globe from a variety of countries including France, Senegal, Mali, Italy, Greece, Cyprus and many more!

    The event will include many British athletes including Hull’s very own hammer thrower Alex Smith. Alex has been involved in major finals such as the London 2012 Olympics and the Dehli and Glasgow Commenwealth Games where he won the Silver medal in 2010. Other high profile athletes taking part include Americans, Zac Lloyd (Shot put), Ronald Taylor (Long Jump) and Donald Brookins (110m Hurdles) who are all ranked in the top 20 in their individual events.

    There will be stalls and refreshments available on the day or why not bring along a picnic and enjoy a great day of free athletics with all the family.
