Para Athletics consists of a wide range of competitions and events carried out on either the track or in the field.
Track events can be divided into three main categories: events that require running on a track over a defined distance, running events with obstacles placed on the track, and relay events.
Sprint events are largely based upon the athlete’s ability to accelerate to his or her maximum speed in the quickest time possible, and are seen as the glamour events of athletics.
Field events in athletics take place on a large field, as opposed to the running track. They can be classified as jumping and throwing categories.
