British Athletics Championships – over 50 GSF athletes competing

The British Athletics Championships are the final opportunity for athletes to show the selectors what they can do at a major championships and also gain the Olympic qualifying time. The championships are over three days (24th-26th June) at Birmingham Alexander Stadium and will be televised on BBC. You can also still buy tickets here.
