The Avon Track and Field League
was set up in 1984 to provide
locally-based Track and Field competition for clubs in or around
the Bristol / Gloucester area. The number of participating clubs
has varied over the years. The organisation is not connected with the
Avon Athletic Association (there's no rivalry: we just carry out
different functions in the sport).
There are four fixtures each season, scheduled if possible to avoid the
other League fixtures to which member clubs are commited. There are events
for all age groups including Under-13s and Masters, with a Quadkids competition
for Under-11s. The League operates two alternating timetables.
CANCELLATION OF LEAGUE FOR 2020: With Rounds 1 and 2 of the 2020 League already cancelled because of the
Covid-19 pandemic, the member clubs agreed in mid-June that there were too many issues over Social Distancing,
potential shortage of officials, and other factors, for the remaining meetings to go ahead as we would like,
so have agreed that the whole season should be abandoned.
