The region has produced Olympic, World, Commonwealth and European Champions and World Record holders. All have found the North East a fantastic place to develop and showcase their athletic talent.

As well as encouraging more youngsters to get into athletics, we want to increase the recruitment of coaches, volunteers and officials to fulfill the dreams of many youngsters in the region and, who knows, maybe find the next Foster, Cram or Wade.
