Metro Blind Sport’s Athletics Open – 11 June 2022
After an enforced break of two years, Metro Blind Sport are once again hosting the Annual Athletics Open on the 11th June 2022.
Now in its 44th year, Metro Blind Sport will be welcoming athletes of all ages and experience, throughout the UK to join us in London for our annual competition.
The athletics event is the perfect opportunity for blind and partially sighted people to experience what it’s like to take part in a professionally organised athletics event. We have official starters, scorers and judges, as well as a commentary for the event.
If you haven’t tried an event before and want to compete or are looking to improve your performance, then the Annual Metro Athletics Open is the place for you. Better still, it is FREE to attend.
The Annual Metro Athletics Open is the highlight of our year. The event remains the number one event for blind and partially sighted athletes, in the UK, regardless of experience. Open to everyone from juniors to veteran athletes they incorporate a comprehensive track and field programme ranging from the 60m sprint to 5,000m.
Field events include the high and long jump, shot put, discus and javelin. Run in accordance with UK Athletics and International Blind Sports Association’s rules by a team of qualified officials, the event is a great day out for families and many new friendships are forged.
