Some of the world’s best athletes including Team GB’s Greg Rutherford, Jonnie Peacock and Asha Philip, will compete alongside international superstars. The innovative event showcases athletics in an unique way, providing an up close and personal experience for spectators.

The event is completely free to spectate, and no tickets are required. Come down to Albert Square from 5PM and the track on Deansgate from 5:30PM. If you’re planning on bringing the kids, a special family area has been created to make sure budding young Olympians get the best view.
