Q) What competition wear am I expected to compete in?
A) As this event is the British Championships, athletes MUST wear the current vest of their first claim affiliated club, University, County or their Regional or National sponsor vest. The club concerned must be the one which in terms of Rule 2 (6) caters for that particular discipline of athletics. There will be no exceptions.
Q) Is the Müller British Athletics Championships an Open or Closed Championship?
A) The Müller British Athletics Championships is a Closed Championships so only athletes eligible to compete for Great Britain & Northern Ireland can complete.
Invitations to compete at the Müller British Athletics Championships are sent to senior and under 20 athletes only. In exceptional circumstance athletes from the Under 18 age group will also be accepted via agreement with their national event coach.
Certain athletes will have qualified in two (or more) events and may only see their name listed in one. This is because we offer you what is assumed to be your preferred event but we are agreeable to switch you to another if you so wish.
Hand timed performances in the 60m, 100m, 200m, and sprint hurdles THAT ALSO HAVE A LEGAL WIND SPEED will be accepted as qualifying performances – as will times in mixed races. We appreciate that many horizontal jumps competitions take place without wind gauges and as such will accept them as qualifiers – provided the athlete has reasonable back up marks.
