Athletics but not as you know it; a fun, fast, female sporting festival.
Festathlon is the combination of Katarina Johnson-Thompson’s three favourite things; athletics, music and Liverpool.
This new sporting festival will celebrate team athletics in a way not seen before. Interspersed between non-stop music and entertainment at Wavertree Athletics Park, all female teams of 6 will go head to head across 7 heptathlon inspired events during one evening to see who can accumulate the most points to gain the advantage going into the 800m showdown, run as a 4x200m relay.
Hosted by Liverpool's own KJT, Festathlon is fusion of sport and entertainment and is as much about athletics as it is fun. DJs and live acts will be on point throughout the night to keep the party going, once finished the athletes will put down their javelins, take off their spikes and join in the festival.
