The first two finishers in each relevant race (U13/u15/U17 M/F), by 2023-24 Cross-Country age groups, were awarded automatic team places; other team members and reserves will be selected from those who had expressed an interest in selection via the Application Form.

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 2023 Championships were held on Saturday 11th March at Paignton, with the UK Championships held on Saturday 1st April at Fenton (Stoke on Trent).

The 2020 and 2021 Championships both fell victim to Covid; the 2022 event was held in reduced form.

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.

  • Cross-Country Championships: Saturday 3th February, RNAS Yeovilton
