Helping the World Para Athletics Championships and IAAF World Championships #GoBetter

This summer in London the biggest sporting events of the year are happening now and we're proud to be an official partner of both of them. We are helping the World Para Athletics Championships and IAAF World Championships go safer, greener and overall smoother.

We rely on innovation to help keep us out in front so we can do our best to support the championships in the most revolutionary methods, just like the athletes themselves.

The events

The athletics championships will see more than half a million spectators and over 2000 of the world's best athletes descend on London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park over the course of the month from over 200 countries. 

The World Para Athletics Championships start from the 14th to 23rd July, followed by the IAAF World Championships from the 4th to 13th August. 

Pop in to see us at our events stand in the Hero Village and watch out for our Toyota Team.

The World Para Athletics Championships
Athlete's transport

A total of 130 Toyota hybrids and drivers are available throughout the championships to allow the athletes to get wherever they need to be whilst using less fuel and emitting less CO2.

The Hybrids are also fitted with the Toyota Safety sense systems to keep all passengers and spectators safe, as well as our brand new Telematics Devices to track how much time the car needs to run in electric mode so the drivers can optimise each journey.
