Whether you're striving to be a world record breaker or simply wanting to take part in one of the world's oldest sports, athletics could be for you.

There are athletics events for everyone, whether you fancy your chances leaping the high jump, throwing the javelin, or sprinting 100m. All-rounders can take part in a heptathlon or a decathlon, which include running, jumping, and throwing events.

Athletics is suitable for people of all abilities.

Typical cost: £2 for a track running session; £10-25 per year for athletics club membership.
