SEAA 2020/21 CHAMPIONSHIPS

UPDATE

SEAA were hopeful of staging some Cross Country and Indoor Track & Field events during this coming winter, even though it looked as if we should only be able to cater for the younger age groups.  However, the news that the Country is to go into Lockdown from this Thursday does throw these aspirations into doubt. 

If Government guidelines after the lockdown permit, we hope to put in place the following events.

Cross Country

Cross Country Relays, London Championships, Master & Inter Counties Championships have been postponed until the New Year.  The Association hopes that it will be possible to stage some Cross Country events in February/March 2021.

Road Relays

At present the date for the 12/6 Stage and 5K Road Relays remains the same; Sunday 28th March 2021.

Track & Field

It is hoped that some Indoor Covid Games can take place dates scheduled for these events are 16th/17th January & 6th/7th February next year.  Due to the restrictions on numbers we may have to use more than one venue.

As we enter another lockdown, we just want to reassure our athletes and officials that we shall do our utmost to stage some competition (In line with England Athletics guidance).  We shall review the situation and publish any further news as soon as we can.

In the meantime, we do hope everyone stays safe and well.

John Gandee

SEAA Competition Chairman
