The Manchester Regional Arena stages the England and Inter-Counties Championships this weekend

The historic Inter-Counties, which were first staged in 1927, are again incorporated into the England Athletics AAA Senior and Disability Championships, which will see a mix of experienced internationals and up-and-coming athletes in action.

Shot-putter Sophie McKinna, who has the World Championships qualifying mark, continues her build-up for next month’s British Championships, where she hopes to secure selection for Doha.

Meanwhile, one athlete who already has his name on the team sheet, 50km race walker Dominic King, will go over the 3km here.

European indoor heptathlon silver medallist Tim Duckworth (pictured) is entered for the high jump, shot put, long jump and pole vault.

Also likely to have a busy couple of days is European junior heptathlon fourth-placer Holly Mills, who is down for the 200m, long jump and shot.

European triple jump silver medallist Naomi Ogbeta is due to defend her title and continue her quest for the 14.20m Doha mark.

Twice Olympian Nathan Douglas will be in action in the triple jump, where he meets Michael Puplampu and Nathan Fox. Also on the jumps runway, eight-metre long jumper Jacob Fincham-Dukes will be seeking to continue his good form.

The men’s shot put will see the UK’s top two this year, Scott Lincoln and Youcef Zatat, go head to head.

In the pole vault, Harry Coppell, after his recent PB of 5.61m, wants to go 10cm higher to gain the Doha standard as he faces Joel-Leon Benitez.

World University Games 5000m winner Jess Judd is listed for both 800m and 1500m but she is also set to race over 5000m at the MK5000 PB Special on Saturday evening.

Jacob Paul and Efe Okoro are the ones to watch in the 400m hurdles.

Under-20 pole vaulter Molly Caudery will be seeking her eighth England title in various age groups.

Also in action will be UK discus No.2 Nick Percy and world indoor 60m semi-finalist Andrew Robertson, who is entered for both sprints, plus sprint-hurdler Alicia Barrett.

A timetable can be downloaded here, with Saturday’s action taking place from 10:55 until the men’s 400m semi-finals at 16:05 and Sunday’s events starting at 10:30 and finishing with the men’s mile at 16:10.

Live results will be available here, with a live stream provided by Vinco Sport here.
