WELCOME to the North Eastern Counties Athletics Association website, our Association is the official body charged with managing County competitions in the various athletics’ disciplines. The Association also selects teams to represent the County at Inter-County events in Track & Field, Cross-Country, Fell and Road running.

23.08.21 NECAA Statement regarding further Open Track & Field meetings this year
With the Covid restrictions being eased at the beginning of the year the NECAA elected to host 5 Track & Field Open meetings. These meetings were extra to the usual NEGP meetings and Championship meetings in order to give our athletes worthwhile competition throughout the year.
The first 2 meetings (April at Morpeth and May at Middlesbrough) proved to be very successful. The NEGP meetings were oversubscribed and we have just completed a successful 2 day Championship meeting at Middlesbrough.
At the beginning of the year it was not foreseen that we would have a Cross Country season, but the Endurance side of our sport has been busy and have put together a full set of Cross Country fixtures, just like pre Covid.
Because of this, the NECAA Committee feels that the remaining Open Track & Field fixtures are no longer required.
Therefore the Open fixtures: 26th September at Morpeth, 9th October at Shildon, 24th October at Morpeth Have all been cancelled.
