This page lists some athletic competitions not promoted or co-ordinated by the EA South-West Council but which involve South-West athletes.
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 provisional Championships dates for 2022 are:
  • 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
London Mini-Marathon: The 2021 London Marathon went ahead on Sunday 3rd October, with the London Mini Marathon run in conjunction (but before the main race had begun). 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 and 2021 Championships both fell victim to Covid.
