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 2021 London Marathon goes ahead on Sunday 3rd October, as does the London Mini Marathon. The South-West teams for this event were selected with the help of a Trials event for a list of athletes based on Power of 10 rankings, held in Taunton on Sunday 12th September. Four athletes per age/gender were selected automatically from the trials, with the remaining two places plus reserve slots being filled following a selectors' meeting via Zoom.

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 Championships were scheduled for the Paignton Sports Centre on Saturday 21st March, but fell victim to the CoronaVirus restrictions.
