2nd September: Sadly the ESAA have now made the decision to cancel this year's Cross Country Cup competition.
It is increasingly clear that it will not be possible to transport pupils across Counties to compete in mass gatherings, and feedback from schools indicates that they will be too busy trying to catch up with lost teaching time anyway.
Existing entries will have their entry fee held over to be used to enter next year's Track & Field Cup or Cross Country Cup.

has been moved online.
The first online exhibition traces the history of the English Schools’ Athletics Association (ESAA) championships; stories and anecdotes from participants, archive material from its inauguration in 1925 up to the modern day, and past champions and athletes who have gone on to achieve further success, in both track and field and 16 other sports. There’s also a look back and indeed forward at Tokyo 1964, 1991 and 2022.
