Time is running out for you to get hold of tickets to what is set to be the most exciting athletics grand prix for years!

Amongst the mouth-watering head to heads on offer are:



  • World 400m champion Christine Ohuruogu and World 400m silver medallist Nicola Sanders will go head to head in the 400m alongside Lee McConnell.

  • Greg Rutherford, Chris Tomlinson and Nathan Morgan will replay their Olympic trials battle in the Long Jump.

  • In the 800m, Jenny Meadows, Marilyn Okoro and Jemma Simpson will compete for supremacy in what has been a high quality event for British women this year.

  • Trials winner Christian Malcolm and World Junior bronze medallist Alex Nelson face the fastest man in the world Usain Bolt, as well as Rodney Martin and Wallace Spearman from the USA in the men's 200m

  • In the Emsley Carr Mile, Dream Mile winner Andy Baddeley, Mike East, Tom Lancashire and Mo Farah will line up against Australian Craig Mottram and Bernard Lagat of the USA.

Win Tickets to The British Grand Prix at the end of August and welcome our Olympic heros home! 



The British Grand Prix is sure to be an amazing event, with returning GB heros and overseas medallists, there can be no better way to sign off our major events series in 2008


International athletics returns to Gateshead just seven days after the Beijing Olympics, with what is certain to be a star studded Grand Prix of new British and overseas Beijing Olympic medallists.


In 2006, the last time the world elite in track and field came to Gateshead, Asafa Powell netted a world record in the 100m, and in 2004 Russia’s Yelena Isinbayeva matched that feat in the women’s pole vault.


Equally great performances are expected this year as the athletes attend in peak physical condition.


This is your chance to experience live world class athletics on your door step at Gateshead International Stadium and the returning British athletes.

a) Greg Rutherford
