The Big Jump

With Glasgow hosting both an Athletics Grand Prix and the Commonwealth Games, we created an event aimed at families to help them get the most out of this amazing summer of athletics.

The Big Jump was held in Sainsbury’s stories throughout Scotland – we placed a long jump pit in each car park and let children aged 5-12 compete in it.

Encouraged by Scottish Olympians and Paralympians, these kids could compete to achieve a personal-best jump. Better still, many of them won tickets to the Games - and even competed in Hampden Park themselves.
