Herts County Champs tent2000

England Athletics support for County Associations 2024 

England Athletics are delighted to support County Associations ahead of the Track and Field Season for the 11th consecutive year.

We continually review our competition grants to ensure that the funding provided to any of our competition partners is aligned with the England Athletics Strategy 2021-2030 'Athletes and runners at the heart'.

We aim to provide inclusive, fun and inspiring experiences for athletes and support our competition partners along the way to innovate and develop competition formats.

In line with the strategy, County Associations can apply for a grant of £500 towards the costs of the Track and Field Championships. We have attributed an amount to each area for which you can claim money, and also added in online results as this is becoming more important to competing athletes.
