Langley Centenary – the 2023 Wenlock Pentathlon Challenge

100 years ago, Harold Langley, an athlete from Sparkhill Harriers in Birmingham, won the multi-event competition at the Games. He was awarded a medal that he was so proud of that he considered it the most important award he received, despite winning multiple awards at regional and national levels and going to compete in the Olympic Games in Paris in 1924. In his memory we are reintroducing this medal for the Wenlock Olympian Games pentathlon.

Sign up and compete for the pentathlon medals by jumping (high and long), throwing (shot put) and running (800m for all with 100m for Senior Men and hurdles for all other).

Age groups U15, U17 and Senior, Men and Women categories.
