Event requirements

On confirmation of the fields on 11 June, detailed information about the event will be sent to all qualifying entrants. As a point of information, the athlete and one other connected person will be allowed into the stadium area. We will not require vaccinations but will require all attendees to self-health check on the morning of the competition and would strongly encourage a lateral flow test be undertaken prior to attending.

The championships will take place at Bedford International Stadium on 19-20 June. The Championships will be run in a COVID-19 secure environment. Please be aware of any UK Government guidance about international travel prior to an event if you are intending to travel abroad prior to the Championships. These Championships are not being held under ‘elite’ status.

We look forward to welcoming all qualifying athletes and their one ‘supporter’ to the 2021 England Championships as part of our ‘Journey to Birmingham 2022’ Championship events.
