The event was first held in 1992, following the dissolution of the Soviet Union. It replaced the Soviet Athletics Championships as the national event for athletes from Ukraine. Separate annual championships are held for certain track (relays, 10,000 metres) and field (throwing) disciplines, cross country running, road running and racewalking events.[1] There is also a Ukrainian Indoor Athletics Championships.[2]

EventsEdit

The competition programme features a total of 38 individual Ukrainian Championship athletics events, 19 for men and 19 for women. For each of the sexes, there are seven track running events, three obstacle events, four jumps, four throws, and one combined track and field event.[1]

The women's programme expanded to match the men's within its first decade. The women's field events reached parity with the men's after the addition of the pole vault in 1996. The women's steeplechase appeared in 2000 metres steeplechase format in 1992 before taking the standard 3000 m distance in 2000. The 3000 metres was replaced by the 5000 m in 1995. A women's 10,000 metres race walk was held in the 1990s, but was later dropped.[1]
