IC4A or ICAAAA (Intercollegiate Association of Amateur Athletes of America) is an annual men's competition held at different colleges every year.

The association controls the field athletic contests between the colleges known as the "IC4A." Currently, the Eastern College Athletic Conference serves as the administrative unit controlling the IC4A brand. As an institution, the IC4A pre-dates the formation of the NCAA.

As of 2008, the outdoor championships have been held for 132 years, making them one of the oldest track meets in the United States. The indoor championships have been held for 87 years. The cross country championships had their 100th running in the fall of 2008. The name "IC4A" only applies to NCAA Division I competition; men's cross country and track competitions hosted by the ECAC for Division II or III are referred to as ECAC meets.

Colleges and universities eligible to compete at the IC4A Championships are those in the New England and Mid-Atlantic States, north and inclusive of Maryland and Delaware. Additionally, teams whose schedules include predominantly teams from that region are also eligible, make the de facto limits of the region reach as far south as North Carolina and as far west as West Virginia.

The IC4A and its women's counterpart, the ECAC Division I Championships, are so-called "super-conference" meets, to reflect schools' membership in other conferences as their primary championship conference,such as the Atlantic 10, Big East, or Northeast Conference.

In both indoor and outdoor track, the top eight finishers in each event or relay earn the honorary designation of "All-East," while in cross country the "All-East" designation is extended to the top-25 finishers.
