England Athletics confirms key 2020 Events Calendar

Registration now open for first indoor event: England Senior & U20 Combined Events Championships, incorporating British Milers’ Club, 4-5 January in Sheffield.

As the year (and the decade) draws to a close, many of England Athletics’ 181,000 affiliated athletes are planning which competitions to enter next year to build on their PBs in their discipline. England Athletics is pleased to confirm the dates of key events in 2020, including its own programme of England championships based on the information available to date. The events calendar will be updated on a regular basis, through social media and via e-communications as they go live, to ensure that athletes and runners of all ages have the opportunity to compete should they choose to do so.

With a total of 68 Championships currently confirmed, 36 are Track and Field, 18 are Road Running, 14 are Cross Country and there are various events covering other disciplines including Walks, Para-Athletics and Mountain Running.

England Athletics CEO, Chris Jones, said:

‘It is important that we provide competitions that meet the needs of athletes and runners of all abilities, aspirations and backgrounds in what is a diverse and inclusive sport. Competition is central to athletics and running in this country and the domestic calendar would not be as accessible without the hard work of the countless volunteers and voluntary run organisations, working to provide opportunities for the 181,000 registered club athletes and runners across England.

‘Whilst EA takes responsibility for organising our own national events and by investing through important partnerships with other organisations, such as the English Schools Athletic Association and the respective Area Competition Associations, we should not forget the numerous other bodies such as the national, regional and local leagues and network of County Associations who each play a fundamental role in making our great sport work. To those providers we are eternally thankful, and we wish them all the very best of success in 2020.’
