Giant Heptathlon is an exciting competition format (with optional coaching) for Secondary One and Two year groups.
Teams (schools) will engage in a range of athletics based activities under the guidance of qualified coaches. Activities will encompass sprinting, hurdling, relays, endurance, jumps and throws with an indoor and outdoor version available.
Athletes will work around seven stations, taking part in each event, and will remain in their school teams at each event. The Giant Heptathlon event can be delivered between 2 -5 hours depending on the time available.
The resources attached below are intended to help schools and local authorities organise a Giant Heptathlon event.
