Open athletics is an organisation for the promotion and development of Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transexual (LGBT) athletics in the broadest sense - including track and field, fell and trail running, and race walking.
We aim to be a forum and a network of individual LGBT athletes, groups and clubs across the UK - in Aberdeen, Berkshire, Brighton, Lancaster, London, Manchester, Midlands, North Wales, West Yorkshire.
Our broader objectives are to encourage open and active participation of the LGBT community in the sporting world and in the wider community and to remove homophobic barriers, contributing to individual sport development and to the development of communities through sport.
We welcome anybody who wants to join our forum - irrespective of their gender, sexual orientation, or athletic ability, who loves athletics or subscribes to our values.
