Following the enthusiasm shown for the English Schools' AA Virtual Track & Field Championships in July, we are pleased to have offered a similar opportunity to Combined Events Athletes and Race Walkers.
With the loss of the Championships that so many young athletes had hoped would be able to take place in September, we made the decision to offer an opportunity for athletes to compete with and against others across the country, between Thursday 20th August and Sunday 20th September (which would have been the finals day of the Championships in Bedford).
For Combined Events, individual events could be done in any order over the period of 'competition', but the full range of Pentathlon (JG and JB), Heptathlon (IG and SG), Octathlon (IB) or Decathlon (SB) needed to be completed and submitted by 20th September 2020. Race Walk entries needed to be submitted by the same day..
Events could be done in training, at school, at a club, or a track, and performances needed to be verified by a responsible adult. All times are submitted as manual because electronic timing facilities couldn't be available to all participants.
All athletes will receive a certificate to show that they participated in the event, sent by email to the contact email address given on the entry form.
You will be able to see a link to the results on the ESAA Facebook page after the end of competition, and they are published here on this website, click the virtual results button on the left.
