The Tenerife Insular Athletics Plan (PIAT) is made up of a set of projects which, distributed in various areas, try to elevate the level of our Island in the practice of this sport and to try to ensure that during the next few years Tenerife athletics makes a leap forward in terms of the quantity and quality of those taking part. This project has been the motivating factor in the recent growth of a discipline which has multiplied its number of licences on the Island by a factor of more than three, from 659 afiliates to more than 2,000 in the last decade.
