Joint County Championships Rationale

This combined approach has been considered for a while but we have finally agreed to do this with Herts.

The reasons are:

1.     Improved competition for athletes.

2.     Greater pool of officials and a guarantee that we can provide electronic timing.

3.     Availability of venue with Bedford having been booked for BAL in 2019 and now being taken by BUCS in 2020 on the preferred mid-May weekend

4.     Sharing of costs although the combination will mean a 2 day competition which minimises this aspect.


Following the latest government dates and discussions with England Athletics, the dates below are our best understanding as follows. I have not included league dates at these can vary by club but County, Regional and National dates are here, Note – most are still subject to confirmation.

You will note that most dates are after the June 21st proposed lifting of all restrictions date.  We do not yet know what impact, if any, the delay to the 19th July will have.
