The IAAF Combined Events Challenge is an annual series of combined track and field events meetings, organised since 1998 by the International Association of Athletics Federations, with heptathlon for women and decathlon for men. The winners are decided by totalling the number of points that the athletes have scored in each of three combined events competitions during the season. Points scored are determined by the IAAF combined events scoring tables. The series includes annual independent combined events meetings as well as championship level combined events competitions, such as the World Athletics Championships and Olympic Games. It is the premier seasonal competition for decathletes and heptathletes, as combined events are not held for the IAAF Diamond League.

Smaller prizes are given to the rest of the top eight finishers.[1]
