England Athletics is pleased to announce the full calendar of Road Race Championship events for 2020 and the return of the Champions of the Road series.
With the first three Championship races of 2020 having previously been confirmed, we can now announce that England Road Race Championships will also take place at the British Airways Run Gatwick Half Marathon, Great South Run (10 miles) and City of Salford 10k.
These three races join those previously confirmed to host England Road Race Championships for 2020, namely the VeloRunner-Envisage Alsager 5 (5 mile), Virgin Money London Marathon and Ipswich Twilight 5k. See below for dates and links to race websites.
We are pleased to be working with a wide range of event providers across the country in providing National Championship competition from 5k through to marathon. Elite runners seeking England Road Running representation will also have the opportunity to demonstrate form and/or earn automatic selection at these Championship races, which will be linked to international representative selection policies, details of which can be found by clicking here.
We are also delighted to announce the return of our Champions of the Road series. The series provides club and elite runners, as well as club teams, the opportunity to compete in a National Championship event and contest for both individual and team titles.
The series incorporates the six England Championship races (as listed below) – with individuals and teams required to compete in three of the six races. The highest scoring team and individual, across both men’s and women’s categories, will be crowned Champions of the Road. Teams and individuals are not required to register and will be automatically entered into the series. Click here for more details.
