South-West Championships

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 the 2018-9 South-West Indoor Championships will be held in Cardiff. The dates are:

A reminder: all the meetings will be held under the 2019 age group rules. The on-line entry system is open for the second meeting (closing on Thursday 13th December at noon), and for the third (closing date Friday 11th January at 10pm). The events to be held on each day (and a warning about the possible limitation of numbers of Field-Event Championships competitors) can be found in This Document.


Medal Count from Championships So Far.


Note: The document on the Welsh Athletics website about eligibility for the South-West Championships is WRONG! Avon athletes are SW-qualified; an athlete's club does not need to be registered with EA for Cross-Country, just for Track and Field.

South-West Cross-Country Championships

The 2018-9 South-West Individual, Inter-Club and Inter-County Cross-Country Championships will be held on Sunday 6th January 2019, at last year's venue of Aldon Hill, Yeovil.

Entries can be made at This Site.



London Mini-Marathon: This meeting will be a significant (but far from the only) factor in selecting U13/U15/U17 teams to represent the South-West at the London Mini-Marathon on Sunday April 29th 2019. Interested athletes must apply on This Form
