The Somerset Combined Events & Race Walking Championships will be held at Millfield

The Somerset Combined Events Championships is an amazing and unique event that is not available elsewhere in the country! It is a great opportunity to test all the skills that ACE athletes have been working so hard to perfect over the winter months! For those of you who are new to combined events, this is a competition where athletes compete in a variety of running, jumping and throwing events -
Most schools will have received entry information and ACE would like to encourage athletes who want to take part to enter through their schools. Please note that in the junior events ie Quadrathlon & Pentathlon, schools and indeed clubs are limited to a maximum of 4 boys and 4 girls so we advise getting the process under way very soon (see below). If any schools have exceeded their quota of athletes in the Quadrathlon or Pentathlon then please contact us and we will see what can be done to ensure your entry is accepted.
We know that some schools are not good at entering athletes for a variety of reasons. Therefore we suggest the following procedure unless you know for certain that your son/daughter or the child you care for has been or will be entered by their school:
Print out the entry form (click here>>), complete all the details (information on year groups and events is given below and on the information sheet -
