This page lists some athletic competitions not promoted or co-ordinated by the EA South-West Council but which involve South-West athletes.
London Mini-Marathon: The 2022 London Marathon will go ahead on Sunday 2nd October, with the London Mini Marathon to be held the day before (over the last 2.6km of the main course). The South-West teams for this event will be selected with the help of a Trials event for a list of athletes based on Power of 10 rankings, being held at Taunton on Sunday 21st August. Four athletes per age/gender will be selected automatically from the trials, with the remaining two places plus reserve slots being filled following a selectors' meeting via Zoom.

South West Schools Championships: Each of the seven Counties has their own Schools Association and there is a South-West Schools AA which promotes the region's Schools Championships; these South-West Championships are important factors for County Schools AAs when making selections for their respective English Schools Championships teams.

The South-West Schools Championships for 2022 were:
  • Cross-Country Championships: Saturday 5th February, Sheldon School, Chippenham
  • Track & Field Championships: Saturday 18th June, Exeter Arena
  • Combined Events Championships: Weekend 25th/26th June, Yeovil
SW Sportshall Championships: Each of the seven County Sportshall organisations (not necessarily the same as the County Association) are entitled to enter teams: in recent seasons only four have done so. The 2020 and 2021 Championships both fell victim to Covid; the 2022 event was held in reduced form.
