The competition is for Junior (under 14) and Intermediate (under 16) age groups. The local rounds of this competition started in May, with over 2500 teams from well over 800 schools throughout England competing against other local schools in their County. The leading teams from the competitions held in each County then competed in one of 7 Regional finals during June. The National Final pits the winning team in each age group in each Region, plus the 5 highest scoring teams in the Country against each other.
Boys teams have 14 athletes, girls teams have 12 athletes. Each athlete can do two events, either one track and the relay, or one field and the relay, or one track and one field event.
