Go for gold and stay in our luxury suites for the 2017 IAAF World Athletics Championships
For the last decade, London has been the hub of some of the best athletic competitions in the world. Since the 2012 Olympic Games, we have hosted some of the most powerful and amazing athletes competing for titles and breaking records. This year, the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) is bringing the 2017 World Championships to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Be a part of sporting history this summer
This will be the 16th competition for the IAAF World Championships, which have hosted thousands of the top track and field athletes from over 200 countries and will feature exhilarating competitions from games like discus, pole vault, dashes, hurdles and more. The famous marathon, which covers a total of 26.2 miles, will begin and end at the Tower Bridge in central London and take runners throughout the capital’s most stunning and historical locations. There will also be a ‘Festival of Race Walks’ on the Mall, at St James Park between Buckingham Palace and Admiralty Arch. This will be held on the final day of the World Championship in Athletics. Witness this historic event as the world’s best athletes compete for glory. Names like Allyson Felix, Laura Muir, Andre De Grasse, and Keni Harrison will be pushing their limits to not only win, but break records.
This exciting 10-day event will be held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park between 4th to the 13th August 2017. Since the 2012 Olympics, the park has undergone major reconstruction to provide a closer and more comfortable experience including four new restaurants, 35 food and drink outlets, and corporate boxes. Tickets start at £20 for adults and £9.58 for children, thanks to the record-breaking 100m run of Jamaican super athlete Usain Bolt, finishing the race at 9.58 seconds. Or, for an unforgettable premier experience, purchase a special trackside lounge package - a VIP offer for anyone who is eager to spectate the competition with the best amenities. It includes perfect views of the home straight, live TV feeds, event programme, and food and drinks provided by the stadium. Tickets are going as fast as the races in the Championship, and are available here, while they last.
