A competition with tradition

The ISTAF was founded by the sport clubs: “Berlin Sport-Club", the "German Sport Club" and the "Sport Club Charlottenburg" in 1937. During this competition, the German athletes were able to compete with the international athletes and thus used this event to prepare better for world championships and the Olympic Games. From then on, the annual sports team grew steadily. Since 2010 the ISTAF is part of the IAAF World Challenge and athletic stars from all over the world like Yohan Blake, Maurice Green and the Harting brothers Robert and Christoph take part.
