UOB T&F Festival 2022
With Olympians and Paralympians competing, custom beer and merch, a world record, and amazing crowd support from our infield cheer zones, the inaugural event surpased our own expectations. Huge thanks to our sponsors Aldi, Monterrain, Birmingham Brewing Company and The Oregano Project for making this event possible - alongside the hard work of the army of officials and volunteers.
"This event will definitely return in 2023 with even more ambition to become the most fun, high quality and immersive track and field meet in the UK!" - Luke Gunn
