IAAF World Championships & World Para Athletics Championships, London 2017

This event has now finished

14 - 23 July (World Para Athletics Championships)
4 - 13 August (IAAF World Championships)

In July and August 2017, London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will light up for a spectacular Summer of World Athletics. It will be the biggest global sporting event of the year – and you’re invited.

Over four magical weeks, the world’s top athletes will bring the roar back to the iconic stadium that saw Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Jonnie Peacock sprint to glory.

And it won’t just be the athletes setting new records... London 2017 is also the first time that the IAAF World Championships and the World Para Athletics Championships will be held in the same summer, in the same city. 

That means 245 events over 20 days of sporting drama, 3,300 athletes from around the globe, and one golden opportunity for you to be part of the action – and history in the making.
