Mo Farah Summer Blog

To celebrate a great summer of sport we invited a selection of bloggers to our Summer Series sporting events, which have been held in various locations across the UK in partnership with British Athletics. We did this to give them and their families a chance to experience British Athletics up close and personal, embracing the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games.

Here’s what they had to say about their Summer Series experience:

The Evans-Crittens family were excited for the chance to embrace the legacy of the Olympics and Paralympics after enjoying the games so much in 2012. You can read more about how excited they were.

They even got a chance to meet Kim Collins and other atheletes too.  By the end of the day everyone was quite tired but they were all inspired into doing a bit more running and athletics.

Red Peffer was super excited to get a chance to attend the Birmingham Grand Prix event… you might say she was jumping for joy! Her and her daughter had a lovely time and enjoyed meeting lots of inspirational athletes.
