What's new for 2017?

In response to requests last year, Under 15 Girls' 300 metres has been introduced as a new event on Saturday. In consequence, the Under 15 Girls 800 metres has been moved from Saturday to Sunday, and the Under 15 Girls 1500 metres has been moved from Sunday to Saturday, in line with the Under 17, Under 20 and Senior Women's events.

The provisional track and field timetables are similar to the actual timetable for last year. As usual there will be some alterations to timings in the finalised timetables depending on the numbers of entries received, whether heats are required and how many heats are needed.

The entry fees have been held at the same level as last year.

Provisional Timetables

Senior Men Senior Women
Under 20 Men Under 20 Women
Under 17 Men Under 17 Women
Under 15 Boys Under 15 Girls
Under 13 Boys Under 13 Girls

The starting heights for High Jump and Pole Vault are shown for each age group. Subsequent progression will be 5cm for High Jump and 10cm for Pole Vault.

Note: The finalised timetable will be published here one week before the championship. It will also be sent to competitors by email if you have given your email address on your entry form.
No copies of the timetable will be sent out by post.

Athlete registration

At the start of April 2016, new UKA Rules for Competition came into effect which included important changes regarding compulsory athlete registration in competitions held under UKA Rules (these rules apply in competitions for the Under 13 Age Group and above).

It will be all the more important athletes check that their registration with England Athletics is renewed for the 2017-18 season.

It is therefore important that competing athletes ensure they are up to date with payment of their club subscriptions and that, when due, their 'club subs' are renewed promptly so that their England Athletics athlete registration fee can be paid.

So far as the Track & Field Championships are concerned, the registrations of all athletes entering the Championships will be checked. It will be helpful and save time if you can specify your England Athletics registration number on your entry form, but this is not essential - your entry will be checked anyway.

You will be informed if you aren't registered or your registration is out of date, in which case please ensure that you are correctly registered before the championships.

PLEASE NOTE: As it is not possible for an individual to register with England Athletics other than through an affiliated club, no unattached athletes can be accepted in the Championships. However, we can accept entries from unattached athletes studying at schools and colleges which are affiliated to Hampshire Schools' AA - please write the name of your school or college in the Club box instead.
