Chris Graves from Inspire+ said: "It feels like such a long time ago since the last face-to-face games.

"The virtual Mini Olympics were a fantastic achievement and gave so many young people and families a chance to participate.

"But, we along with our schools, cannot wait to all be back together at the athletics stadium for three truly inspiring days."
