South-West Championships

South-West Cross-Country Championships

The 2021-2022 South-West Individual, Inter-Club and Inter-County Cross-Country Championships will be held at RNAS Merryfield on Sunday January 2nd 2022. It is hoped that no Covid restricions will be needed, although as the base is a working MOD site, certain formalities may be necessary.

The Championships Entries Site is at This Site.

The event scheduled for January 2021 was postponed, then cancelled entirely.

Results from January 2020 can be found Here.

Results from January 2019 can be found Here.

South-West Indoor T&F Championships

The South-West has many great features: historic buildings, glorious scenery, impressive beaches, etc. --- but no 200m Indoor Track. So any 2021-22 South-West Indoor Championships need to be held in Cardiff; any event held there would depend on rulings from the Welsh Government and from Welsh Athletics Ltd.


The 2021-22 Championships will be held in a series of events: the first meeting (a range of U13/U15/U17 events) will be held on Sunday 5th December, with entries closing on Thursday 25th November at 17.00. The entries site is Here.


Note: the South-West medals will be awarded by comparing performances of those who declared themselves as eligible for South-West competition. The organisers cannot simply look at club names (e.g. an athlete may have recently moved to the South-West and have not yet established a residential qualification)


In view of the Covid restrictions, it was not possible to hold any South-West Championships in the Winter season 2020-2021.

South-West Road Running Championships

The South-West Inter-Counties Road Race competition will not be held in 2021. The last possibility for even a single-event contest (the Glastonbury 10km on Sunday 19th September) proved to clash with too many other events (including the Great Bristol 10km and Great Bristol Half Marathon) to attract enough County teams to make it worthwhile.

South-West Road Relays Championships

The 2021 event, scheduled for Sunday August 29th at Cleeve (between Bristol and Weston Super Mare) again, has been called off because of actual and potential Covid issues.



Regional and Area Championships

Please Note: Entry in a South-West Championships (a Regional Championship) in any discipline does not prevent an athlete taking part in Midland or Southern Championships events (which are Area Championships).


Athletes or teams from Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire may opt either for Midland Counties AA or South of England AA competitions, but may not compete in both in the same competition year.
