The UK Challenge Throwsfest at Alexander Stadium Birmingham on July 29 is shaping up as a top class event, not to be missed by throwers from across the UK.

In this competition, there will be no track races or jumps to distract the throwers or crowd, and the UK’s best throwers will be the stars of the show.

There will be a minimum prize fund of £5000, travel expenses to all athletes and with a DJ and music, a great atmosphere is guaranteed. There will be a number of competitions during the day involving Senior, U20 and U17 athletes. Each athlete will be guaranteed at least 6 throws. Additionally there will be a free evening barbeque as well as a beer tent and a free lunch and t-shirt and some of Britain's greatest ever throwers have promised to attend.


Two weeks later it will be the turn of the jumpers at Northwood Stadium in the UK Challenge Jumpsfest. They too will have the benefit of £3000 worth of prizes, 6 jumps, Barbecue, beer tent, free lunch and the event will be attended by a number of leading jumpers of the past.
