2022 CHESHIRE TRACK & FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS ENTRIES ARE NOW OPEN

The 2022 Cheshire Track & Field Championships will be held at Macclesfield, on Saturday and Sunday, 14 and 15 May.

Online entries are now open at: SportSoft Entries & Results: https://www.race-results.co.uk/results/2022/


2022 NORTHERN TRACK & FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS ENTRIES ARE NOW OPEN

Both the Senior/U20 Championships on the 18th and 19th June, and the U17/U15/U13 Championships will now be held at Wavertree Stadium, Liverpool, due to over booking at Sport City.

A further change has occurred in the last few days, when England Athletics decided to exclude Area Championships from both their Senior and age group Combined Events meetings. This has come as a shock and unfortunately Northern Athletics are unable to rearrange such a complicated event at such short notice and therefore there will be no Northern CE Championship this year.

The senior/U20 prospectus is available here: www.race-results.co.uk/results/2022/

The U17/U15/U13 Championships prospectus and entry form will go live later this week.
