Baltic Indoor Athletics Championships

The Baltic Indoor Athletics Championships (Estonian: Balti maavõistlus, Latvian: Baltijas valstu sacensības, Lithuanian: Baltijos šalių mačas) was an annual indoor track and field competition between athletes from the Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania). The competition featured 26 individual events, divided evenly between the sexes, and had team titles for each sex and an overall combined team title.

The Tallinn Sports Hall hosted half of the championships

Hosting duties for the competition passed between Estonia and Lithuania, with Tallinn holding the event seven times, Kaunas three times, and Panevėžys twice. The competition was held each February from 1995 to 2006. It was a two-day competition until 2001, after which is was contested over a single day. The final competition in 2006 was between Latvia and Lithuania only.

The competition's lifetime overlapped with the Baltic Sea Games, a multi-sport event which was hosted in Tallinn in 1993 and Kaunas in 1997.[1]
