Next year, the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games will take place in Paris. To mark this occasion, Get Set (the official youth engagement programme from Team GB and ParalympicsGB), is on a mission to get children aged 5-11 and their families more active with their new virtual challenge – Path to Paris. Sports clubs, schools, community groups and families can set up teams for children to take part – and everyone can join in with the fun alongside them, completely for free!
The Path to Paris virtual journey
We all know how important it is to get children and young people more active. So why not encourage them to get moving and take on a virtual journey across the world! Path to Paris, from Team GB and ParalympicsGB, wants to inspire the nation to get active in the run-up to the Paris 2024 Games.
Starting from Athens, participants can create teams in schools, community groups, or families and every time you get active you’ll earn kilometres to power your team bus. You can even win some amazing prizes along the way!
The final stretch will take your team through the UK so you can collect Team GB and ParalympicsGB athletes and learn more about them, their sports, and the history of the Games. With loads of motivational activities and videos, encourage your members to get moving to make sure their bus gets to Paris in time!
Path to Paris in your Taekwondo club
Keep children and young people motivated and moving in-between classes! Set challenges for your virtual teams and watch them virtually travel around the world from week to week. The free, fun activities make a perfect add-on and can bring your group together – and encourage them to get their friends and family involved too.
