The Junior Track and Field Championships are a particularly important event within the Association for it enables our future representative athletes to have their first opportunity of competing against and with others from across the County.
In the 1960’s there was a strong ‘Minor’ age group within schools athletics; however as the English Schools AA developed into the now well established three age group format Under 13 aged athletes no longer had a county platform.
Certainly a Somerset Junior Track and Field Championships, for Under 13 and Under 14 aged athletes, took place in 1882 but it is not sure if this was the first.
I am tracking back through available results to catalogue Junior Champions: as a starting point they are listed from 2002.
Championship best performances are highlighted in yellow; where there is no highlight the CBP was set prior to 2002.
