Crystal Palace Athletics Association (CPAA), is a working group of the Crystal Palace Sports Partnership (CPSP), and has increasing athletics sports participation in Crystal Palace Park and the National Sports Centre at its heart. The Associations overall purpose is to support and promote athletic sports clubs and events in Crystal Palace – covering a wide range of activities including Road Running, Triathlon, Track & Field, Cycling, and Cross Country. As a group we bring together skills and experience crucial to helping deliver sporting events in the outdoor areas of the Sports Centre (namely the Track and Stadium) and throughout the wider park, allowing local people of all abilities to access the area in a way that promotes health and fitness.
