As you know the County Championships are normally held the 2nd weekend in May. This is before 17th May when restrictions are still in place.
This would mean that there could be no spectators, possibly no coaches and only one person to accompany a child to the stadium. Further, there is a question as to whether athletes would all be fit to compete without causing injury.
The County has been talking to UKA and EA and have now agreed for the county championships to be held on 31 July and 1 August 2021. 4 other counties are holding their championships on the same weekend. This hopefully should mean that the championships will follow the normal pattern.
Chelmsford Stadium is booked and the on-line booking system will be available at the end of May. Can you please circulate the information to the athletes and coaches so we have a good attendance at the championships.
Just a reminder that athletes have to be registered with England Athletics to compete as I am aware that a number of athletes did not register in 2020.
