The ESAA Combined Events are held over two rounds. The Regional rounds are normally held on the fourth weekend in June - there are 6 regions in the UK. The Final is normally held on the 3rd Saturday in September and the day after.

Race Walk Championships are held at the same time as the Combined Events - athletes are entered individually by County Secretaries.

Athletes wishing to be considered for selection are normally already well known to the County Associations, but others who wish to be considered for County Team select who are not already in contact with their County Association should contact the ESAA using the contact the ESAA form on the home page.

Combined Events teams can have 4 athletes. The results are worked out by adding the points totals of the leading 3 athletes in the team. At the Regional rounds, the highest scoring County team goes through to the Final, plus the two highest scoring individuals not otherwise in a team. Additionally, the 9 highest scoring athletes from across the Country who are not otherwise included will also qualify for the National Final, making a total of 45 athletes in each age group Final.

There will be no further invites to the finals other than those described above except where invites are extended to others who may qualify according to Rule 51.

With 270 athletes at the Combined Events Final, each doing from 5 to 10 events, the two days of competition provide an amazing spectator experience.

Past ESAA Champions, and record holders, include Dean Macey (World Championships Silver Medallist). A Recent ESAA Champion and record holder was Katarina Johnson Thompson and Jessica Ennis was actually only ever 2nd!
