The IAAF World Challenge is an annual global circuit of fourteen one day athletics competitions organized by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF). Started in 2010 it comprised the second level (after the IAAF Diamond League) of athletics meetings over the season and replaced the IAAF Grand Prix. Unlike the Diamond League, the IAAF World Challenge comprises stand-alone meetings, and no overall winners are crowned.
