The AAA and WAAA Indoor Championships have usually been held together, with the meeting usually billed as the National Indoor Championships. WAAA medals were awarded until 1991 and AAA medals were awarded until 2006. From 2007 the event has had a number of different names and sponsors.
Track events were over imperial distances until 1967, with metric distances from 1968 onwards, when RAF Cosford received a new 200m track.
Similarly, field event marks and heights were recorded in imperial measurements until 1967, with metres used from 1968. In the lists that follow imperial measurements have been converted to metric according to Bob Sparks's rules and the conversion tables derived from those rules. For the high jump, imperial heights have been converted to the nearest millimetre. For the pole vault the Sparks table for ¼-inch measurements has been used.
