Preliminary information

This page will be updated regularly in the run up to the Championships - depending on how your browser is set up you may need to click your refresh button to get the latest additions.

How to get there

You can find all things to do with Gateshead from the Gateshead Council website.

You can also find a map, directions, and stadium layout from there too.

Find A road map of the area here.

Event Locations

Because of the size of the event, it is impossible to hold all field events within the arena. Some of the long throws will be held in the lower field adjacent to the Stadium.

Check out the plan of the arena and surrounding areas here.

Timetable of Events

The timetable is now available in PDF file format to enable you to print it easily.

This website makes extensive use of PDF files - most browsers should be automatically set up to read them, but if your browser just shows a load of random characters, you need to install Adobe Acrobat Reader. You can download this FREE at You really do need to install this if you want to get the best from the ESAA website.

All competitors will be issued with the full printed programme which will be on sale at the Championships. It is the ESAA policy not to publish the full programme on the website - sales of programmes with the sponsors' advertising they contain are a major source of income without which the Championships could not be held.

Please see the FAQs page for further details and answers to many other Frequently Asked Questions about the Championships.

Entry List of Athletes

Lists of all athletes entered in the Championhsips are available here. Please check the spelling of names is correct. It is now too late to get any corrections into the programme but they will appear in the results. Please use the 'contact us' button on the main menu - corrections will be noted and our live event files will be modified accordingly, but because of the high volume of other mail we get in the run up to the Championships we don't have time to acknowledge each mail, nor will these online files be updated with corrections - sorry, we just don't have the time!
