The ESAA National Championships are the 4th largest athletics event in the World... staged each year. They were televised live by SKY Sports from 2008 to 2013.
Organised entirely by volunteer teachers, we bring together the best athletes in each County in England to compete for the honour of being the best athlete in the Country at their event.
Entry to the event is by virtue of athletes being selected by County Team Managers to represent their County. Prime consideration is given to performances at County Championships which are normally held sometime around the 2nd week of June, but other outstanding performances at other events may be taken into consideration.
Nearly all the UK Olympic Athletics team members have featured in the ESAA Championships, some other Olympic Team members too - just look at the previous teams:
