The majority of athletics events in Hampshire are organised by member clubs, either on their own behalf or as part of a national or regional league. Summary details of recent and forthcoming events are shown in the Event Calendar.

Hampshire Athletics is mainly responsible for organising county championships and other competitions:

Track and Field

In common with other county associations, Hampshire Athletics usually holds its Track & Field Championships on the last weekend in the middle of May, when approximately 700 athletes compete at the Mountbatten Centre, Portsmouth on two full days of athletics.

Online entry forms are available on this website from March. Printed entry forms are also available for download. The closing date is usually at the end of April to allow time for the timetable of events, which depends on the numbers of entries received, to be finalised.

The Multi-Events Championships are usually held on May Day Bank Holiday Monday. Athletes each compete in five track and field disciplines accumulating points according to their performances. The Walks events from the Track & Field Championships are held on the same day, in which non-Hampshire athletes may also participate. Nine- and ten-year-old athletes have a chance to take part in the QuadKids Championships. Meanwhile, the May Day Mile and 3000 metres are open events available to both Hampshire and non-Hampshire athletes.


The Hampshire Cross-Country Championships are usually held on the first or second Saturday in January. Online entry forms are available from early November and should be completed by the end of December.

The Hampshire Cross-Country League comprises five matches between October and February in Hampshire and just over the border in neighbouring counties.

Road Running

The Hampshire Road Race League runs from September to June and comprises twelve races selected by the competing clubs at their annual meeting.


Sportshall has become very popular in Hampshire, with success at regional and national levels.

The Hampshire Sportshall League comprises four matches held in November, December, January and March at various venues around the county, although recently most matches have been held at Places Leisure Eastleigh.
