ITV are switching off all their channels for one hour a week today (Saturday 27th August) to give you the opportunity to get out and get active with I Am Team GB.

The switch off happens at 0930am.

It could be the nation's biggest free sports day! It is not too late to find a free event today.

The National Lottery and ITV will be asking the nation to get out and get active by taking part in I Am Team GB, the UK’s biggest ever sports day.

Local North East and North Yorkshire sports clubs who have signed up to be part of the day are opening their doors to the public so you can have a go at a sport for free.

“You don’t have to be an Olympian to be part of Team GB. National Lottery players make a huge difference through the support they give athletes and on the August bank holiday weekend, there is another amazing chance to be part of it.

Olympic and world champion Greg Rutherford (Long Jump)

The event is taking place in conjunction with the British Olympic Association (BOA), UK Sport and is supported by Join In.
