Invictus UK Trials Sheffield 2019
Sheffield will gain another notch on its sporting belt this summer as it hosts the first ever Invictus UK Trials.
The event will see almost 500 wounded, injured or sick military personnel and veterans compete in an adaptive multi-sport championship and wider programme of activity.
Run by the Invictus UK partnership comprising Help for Heroes, the Ministry of Defence and the Royal British Legion, events will take place from 22-26 July, across Sheffield’s top sporting venues and other locations.
Over five days 475 competitors, supported by their friends, family and local community, will compete in up to nine sports – Archery, Athletics, Cycling, Indoor Rowing, Powerlifting, Sitting Volleyball, Swimming, Wheelchair Basketball and Wheelchair Rugby.
As well as a packed sports schedule, a wider programme of activity will take place across the City, supported by Invictus UK’s delivery partners and Sheffield organisations.
An opening event will mark the start of the Trials, with an exciting announcement to follow soon on what it will include and how local people can get involved.
More information will be released in the coming weeks with lots of opportunities to get involved and join in with the Invictus UK Trials Sheffield 2019.
