    The World Para Athletics Grand Prix series enters its seventh year in 2019 with nine events scheduled to take place around the world between February and August, ahead of the World Para Athletics Championships in November.

    Dubai, UAE – 24-27 February 2019

    The season kicks off in Dubai in the same stadium that will host the World Championships just over eight months later. It’s the third consecutive year that the Fazza International Championships will open the Grand Prix season.

    Sao Paulo, Brazil – 25-27 April 2019 [tbc]

    Brazil has been an ever-present on the Grand Prix calendar, with Sao Paulo having hosted five of the six events since 2013. This will be the third year that the state-of-the-art Paralympic Training Centre has staged the Grand Prix – which is the seventh edition of the Loterias Caixa Championships.

    Beijing, China – 10-12 May 2019

    The seventh China Open will again take place at one of the training venues used for the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games. Many of the stars who helped China to the top of the 2018 Asian Para Games medal table are likely to compete on home soil.

    Arizona, USA – 24-25 May 2019

    Arizona State University hosts the 2019 Desert Challenge Games. US wheelchair racer Daniel Romanchuk smashed the men’s 800m T54 world record there in 2018 and the 20-year-old will certainly be one to watch in 2019.

    Nottwil, Switzerland – 24-26 May 2019

    There will be competition on both sides of the Atlantic in the final weekend of May, with the fastest track in wheelchair racing playing host to the ParAthletics Grand Prix. Fourteen world records have been broken at the Nottwil Grand Prix, which continually attracts many of the best racers in the world.

    Grosseto, Italy – 8-9 June 2019

    The Italian city returns to the Grand Prix calendar for the first time since 2016 – the same year the Carlo Zecchini Olympic stadium hosted the European Championships. The newly-renovated track can hold more than 10,000 spectators.

    Tunis, Tunisia – 28-30 June 2019

    Africa’s only Grand Prix of 2019 returns to Tunis, with the country’s top athletes likely to dominate the event. It is the 13th time the Tunis International Meeting has been held, with its warm climate and location attracting athletes from across the region.

    Berlin, Germany – 10-11 August 2019

    The hosts of the 2018 European Championships will once again stage one of the most popular Grand Prix on the circuit. The German capital city is well-known for hosting international sporting events and the Friedrich Ludwig Jahn Sportpark has seen record-breaking performances in past years.

    Paris, France – 29-30 August 2019

    Paris will stage the season-ender for the first time in its third year as a Grand Prix host. The home of the 2024 Paralympic Games is no stranger to top quality sports competition, with several world records set in both track and field at the 2018 edition.
