More often, County, Area and National Team Competition is organised on a wider scale and isused as (unofficial) club ranking

In all competitions, athletes are usually pre-entered with a closing date
Teams are pre-selected on the day from the entries in Road but in most cross-country the 'team' is the best-placed finishers of the pre-entered athletes
Track and Field club competition is held through meetings in a league structure (whilst individual championships may well be a one-off specific meeting)

In cross-country has traditionally been through mass-entry races (eg National Cross-country) but in recent years cross-country relays have gained a high profile
