County Track & Field Championships 2017

County Track & Field Championships 2017

County championships will be taking place across England this summer. The vast majority of events will be happening in May with some counties also arranging additional events to take place at other times.

As well as bringing you information about these county championships England Athletics also has a scheme where county associations can apply for grants to help support them with improved quality of championships provision. This can include helping to fund such resources as electronic timing and electronic distance measurement.

To find out more about your county's championships or opportunities available through your county association please see the information below.

For many counties the championships provide opportunities for those athletes wanting to be selected for their county at the England Athletics AAA & UK CAU Senior Champs.
