About Us

TRACK & FIELD TOURS has been established since 1991 as a specialist athletics event and sports tour operator with owner and managing director David Barnett having worked in this niche sector of the travel industry since 1983. T&FT’s Spectators Tours programme includes all of the world’s major international athletic competitions including the World and European Championships plus the Commonwealth and Olympic Games at which we have been officially appointed agents. T&FT also organises sports training camps in both athletics and swimming as well as a variety of other sports

Amongst those companies that offer athletics travel our experience in the British and European market is unrivalled as the majority of companies that were around in the 90’s have long ceased trading and newer companies do not have the same experience. Here in the UK no other companies have a similar background of operating under the same management or corporate entity for more than a few years. 

Our testimonials are evidence of the standard of service that we consistently offer and of which we are very proud, with some clients having travelled with us since we started.

SPECTATOR TOURS – athletics fans receive a truly bespoke service

A choice of the best located athletics tickets will, of course, be available PLUS unique package inclusions for the major events such as an event T&FT Athletics Spectator Information Guides – a handy A5 size booklet with competition timetable, event facts and history, athletes seasonal performance ranking lists and all world, regional and national records plus multi-event scoring tables, along with T&FT Daily Newsletters to be the best informed spectators at the event. At the major events fans will also receive, or can choose event Supporters Polo Shirts personalised to your national team – the majority will, of course, be GBR supporters but whether you are a single non-GBR fan or a group you will also be catered for. And then there are the special event Supporters Parties with a roll call of world and British elite athlete guests – Michael Johnson, Cathy Freeman, Kelly Holmes et al and 20 of the England Athletics team at Glasgow 2014 – attending  imaginative venues with excellent food and drink. 

 Our client’s experience of our service defines the art of BEING THERE !
