Grassroots Development

With support from European Athletics, the Spanish athletics federation secured a € 300,000 grant from the European Union and is now leading the work to bring DNA to the grassroots with its “Jungle Athletics” project. In addition to national schools and clubs competitions, the project includes development of a smartphone app, a TikTok-style video challenge and competitions in the Trackathlon, a special promotional discipline that can be described as a meeting between athletics and Crossfit. The project will culminate with a 2022 conference for interested federations and clubs where they will share experiences and create a blueprint for rolling out DNA.
