Each Fanzone will open on July 26 in time for the opening ceremony, running until the day of the closing ceremony on August 11. The athletics schedule begins on August 1.

Fans can enjoy live DJ sets, the chance to try their hand at Olympic-themed activities, plus a programme of onstage entertainment, including Q&As and medal celebrations with Team GB’s returning athletes.

The first nine Fanzones have been announced and span seven cities across Scotland and England.

So far, seven athletics stars – six in the marathon and one over 10,000m – have secured their place on the team.

Emile Cairess, Phil Sesemann and Mahamed Mahamed are the trio in the men’s marathon while Charlotte Purdue, Calli Hauger-Thackery and Rose Harvey make up the women’s field over 26.2 miles.

Megan Keith will also represent Team GB in the 10,000m after winning at Night of the 10,000m PBs, which doubled up as the British Olympic trials over the distance. The Scot needed to finish as one of the top two Brits, having already run below the qualifying standard of 30:40.00 with 30:36.84 in California.

Most of the athletics action at Paris 2024 will take place at the Stade de France but the marathons and race walks will of course take place in the city itself.

The countdown to Paris 2024 is in full swing and I look forward to seeing ParalympicsGB’s athletes line up in Paris this summer.”

We are delighted to be working with them on the delivery of our fan zones throughout what is sure to be a special Olympic Games for Team GB.”
