About UK Athletics

UK Athletics is the National Governing Body for the sport of athletics in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Since its inception in 1999, UK Athletics has developed to become the most successful and robust athletics governing body in the world with a world class major events series and overseeing the performances and the British Athletics Olympic and Paralympic programme teams.

This vision is fuelled by a dedicated team of full time staff and volunteers who all share the same passion and ambition for athletics, and are therefore instrumental in ensuring that athletics remains the most popular Olympic and Paralympic sport.
