  • Three events have been added to the latest document & notes in the post above.

    No streaming has been confirmed yet for the Launceston 10k & Half Marathon but I'd say it is likely.


    • As I thought, there will be live streaming of the Launceston 10k & Half Marathon this evening. The latest document has been updated with details.


      • Live streams for Friday 18th December to Tuesday 22nd December:

        • Daikin Night Of 5s (Rosedale (Auckland), NZL) - The 5000s are the main events but there's many other disciplines on the program too; Some good athletes competing including Tom Walsh, NZL's two young 4.50m female pole-vaulters - Olivia McTaggart & Imogen Ayris, Matt Baxter, Julian Oakley, Camille Buscomb, Joseph Millar, Zoe Hobbs & their new fast teenager racing the 200, Edward Osei Nketia
        Friday to Saturday
        • Meeting de la Réunion (La Réunion, FRA) - World Athletics Challenge – Combined Events; Kevin Mayer is the star attraction here
        • Albie Thomas Mile (Georges Hall, NSW, AUS) - Not just Mile races at this meeting; Linden Hall, Jenny Blundell, Keely Small & Lauren Reid amongst those in the Women's Mile whilst Oliver Hoare and Jeff Riseley are in the Men's; In other events there's Steven Solomon (400) & Bendere Oboya (W 400) and a good Women's 400 Hurdles
        • Taipei Marathon (Taipei City, TPE) - A small but quality international field here of 6 men & 6 women ahead of the mass race; Paul Lonyangata and Chala Dechasa are amongst those running
        • Sanyo Women's Road Race (Okayama, JPN) - Half Marathon; Always a quality field for this, even this year; Olympic Marathon-bound Honami Maeda & Mao Ichiyama are entered along with Joan Jepkemoi and a host of other good athletes
        • The Marathon Project (Chandler, AZ, USA) - Good fields for this being run on a 4.3m loop; Reportedly a fast course; The women's field is cracking actually, including S Hall, K Taylor, E Bates-Ulmer, S Bruce, K D'Amato, N Wodak and Britain's Sarah Inglis making her marathon debut; The men's field includes S Fauble, J Ward, C Levins, CJ Albertson, M McDonald, R Buchanan, S Biwott and a few good internationals (Mexico, Eritrea & Ukraine)
        Tuesday 22nd
        • Victorian Milers Club Meet #2 (Box Hill, AUS) - 800, 1500 & 3000; Don't yet know how good the fields will be for this
        Link & details at

        That's it for streams before Christmas! Have a good but safe time, everyone!
        Next major post on Tuesday 29th December for the Mount Fuji Women's University Ekiden and hopefully some of the traditional New Year's Eve road races.

        • It turns out that the whole of the multi-events at the Meeting de la Réunion is being live streamed on Facebook.

          Also, added to the post above & the document is the Taipei Marathon.


          • Full video of today's Marathon in the USA won't be available until Tuesday.

            Also, still waiting & hoping that the Sanyo Women's Road Race will appear on YouTube.


            • The full broadcast of Sunday's marathon in the USA is now available for download (2.7GB) - see the link in the latest document. It will be quite a while though before Google Drive processes it for in-browser viewing.

              Sadly, the TV broadcast for the Sanyo Women's Road Race (Half Marathon) in Okayama has not been uploaded to YouTube.
              1. Husan Zeyituna (ETH) 69:24
              2. Joan Chepkemoi (KEN) 69:28
              3. (LuckySpikes' fave) Mao Ichiyama 70:17
              9. Honami Maeda 70:39


              • Live streams/broadcasts for Wednesday 30th December to Saturday 2nd January:

                Over the next few days we have 3 big Ekidens and also 3 traditional New Year's Eve races that have survived the pandemic. The other big New Year's Eve race that's streamed (in Sao Paulo) has been rescheduled for July. There's WR & ER attempts galore in the NYE races in Barcelona & Bolzano.

                Apologies, I haven't had time to highlight some athletes in the Ekidens but JapanRunningNews does have a good preview for each of those races.
                All 3 of these Ekiden broadcasts are usually uploaded afterwards to YouTube.

                • Mt Fuji Women's University Ekiden (Shizuoka, JPN) - AKA National Women's Invitational University Ekiden Championship; This features the top 12 teams from last month's Morino Miyako Ekiden as well as some invited teams
                Thursday (New Year's Eve)
                • BOclassic Südtirol (Bolzano, ITA) - WA Bronze Label; This year the distances have been flipped with the Women's race 10km & the Men's 5km; The men's race features Muktar Edris, Telahun Bekele, Tadese Worku, Abdelaati Iguider & Yemane Crippa who is attempting to break the European Record (Gressier's 13:18); In the women's 10km there's an attempt on the Women's-only WR (30:29) by a field that includes Norah Jeruto, Margaret Chelimo Kipkemboi & Dorcas Tuitoek & Gloriah Kite; Usually run around laps of the old town, this year it's been moved outside the town centre and they'll do 975m laps
                • Cursa dels Nassos (Barcelona, ESP) - This translates from Catalan as "Run of the Noses"! In the 5km Genzebe Dibaba is making an attempt on the WR (Hassan's 14:44) and with a French contingent of Gressier, Amdouni & Bedrani in the men's, there's an attempt on the European Record (which may have been revised 75 minutes earlier in Bolzano!); In the 10km Hellen Obiri is attempting to break Jepkosgei's 29:43 WR and Carlos Mayo will attempt to break Toni Abadia's 27:48 NR (note: Fernando Carro ran 27:46 in Alcobendas last month but it was downhill by too much)
                • San Silvestre Vallecana (Madrid, ESP) - WA Gold Label; 10km road race; I got it wrong initially! There are international fields here, headed by Chepngetich & Yehualaw in the women's and with Paul Chelimo, Daniel Simiu & Mike Foppen in the men's, a strong cast of Spaniards including Carro, Abadia, Oumaiz & others
                • New Year Ekiden (Maebashi, JPN) - AKA Japanese Men's Corporate Ekiden Championship
                Friday to Saturday
                • Hakone Ekiden (Tokyo/Kanagawa, JPN) - The Japanese Men's University Ekiden Championship that takes place over 2 days (10 legs totalling 217.1km); This is a massive deal for all Japanese male student runners
                All the links & details at

                I will post again by early on Saturday 2nd January IF Saturday's late-night Xiamen Marathon (CHN) has been opened up to international elite athletes.

                • This afternoon's Cursa dels Nassos is now also being streamed on YouTube (same broadcast as TV but with Spanish not Catalan comms). The link has been added to the latest document.


                  • The full broadcast (1h 52m with the ads taken out) of yesterday's Mt Fuji Women's University Ekiden is at - well, almost full. The first 7 minutes of Leg 1 is missing but they do show a replay of the huge burst that Tomomi Musembi Takamatsu put in to get clear of the pack on Leg 1. She paid for it later though ...

                    • The full broadcast recording of this morning's New Year Ekiden (with ad breaks removed) is at - it's 4h 3m long.


                      • Live streams for Saturday 9th January:

                        • Portuguese Road Championships (Estoril, POR) - STREAM FAILED TO MATERIALISE. 10km races taking place on the motor-racing track; Groups of 10 athletes in restricted fields (50 women; 100 men) will be going off at 1 minute intervals - presumably the top-seeded athletes first so that the fastest runners definitely cross the finish line first; Good-looking women's race with Carla Salome Rocha, top youngster Mariana Machado, Catarina Ribeiro, Jessica Augusto & Sara Moreira. Rocha should start as the favourite though I'm hoping that Machado has a big race in her 10k debut; Hard to recognise names in the men's race - Portuguese men's distance running is really in the doldrums! I do know Joao Almeida (marathon runner) and they've got a 28:25 guy running here, Samuel Barata

                        Next post on Wed 13th January for the following morning's Vic Milers Club meeting in Australia.

                        • Sadly, the stream for the Portuguese Road Championships has failed to materiialise. Hopefully though, thye've been recording it and will upload it later?


                          • Live streams for Thursday 14th January to Friday 15th January:

                            • Victorian Milers Club Meet #3 (Box Hill, AUS) - 800 & 1500; Many of Australia's best are still keeping their powder dry so the fields aren't super-deep. However, Catriona Bissett, Georgia Hansen & Jemima Russell go in a decent W 1500 'A' race
                            • Akron Quad Meet (Akron, OH, USA) - NCAA Division I meeting; Akron vs Kent State vs Buffalo vs Eastern Michigan; The startlists are now out and it looks decent; Based on their streams of last year's indoor meetings, the track coverage (watchable) will be better than the field (though the HJ is better because it's near the camera). However, there's no on-screen graphics or even shots of stadium clocks or results boards. EDIT : They do now have an on-screen clock and results graphics straight after each race, and some startlists too. There is sound but no commentary. The link in the document for startlists also serves as the Live Results page
                            Friday to Saturday
                            • Commodore Indoor AKA Vanderbilt Invitational (Nashville, USA) - NCAA Division I meeting; A meeting of 6 SEC teams - Vanderbilt, Alabama, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Missouri & Tennessee; Some strong "programs" here and whilst some are keeping back a few of their best for later meetings there's still some quality on show; Friday is some field events plus the DMRs and 5000s with the bulk of the track action on Saturday; Karissa Schweizer's little sister, Kelsey, goes in the 800 for Mizzou - in her 2nd year, perhaps not as talented as Karissa but then Karissa didn't come really good until the second half of her collegiate career

                            Next post on Friday 15th for indoor meetings over the weekend.

                            • The Commodore Indoor meeting in Nashville has been added to the latest document (see notes above) - a meeting of 6 SEC teams, the SEC being one of the "powerhouse" D1 conferences.


                              • Live streams for Saturday 16th January:

                                1 Professional Pole Vault meeting, 6 NCAA Division I meetings and 3 NCAA Division 2 meetings to choose from this Saturday!

                                There is a big meeting at Michigan University but their live streams are poor, especially for track events (only a finish line camera!) so that's not included here. Additionally, there's a few of the biggest D1 meetings being broadcast on ESPN-affiliated channels not available on the internet.

                                I think all these Universities streaming the meetings below are going to be streaming their other home meetings this indoor season, so most weekends look like they're going to busy for the next 5 or 6 weeks.

                                Finally, I can't yet vouch for the quality of the coverage at any of these NCAA meetings. If I have time to investigate further, I'll update the notes below.

                                • Day 2 of the Commodore Indoor meeting (Nashville, USA) - NCAA D1 meeting; see notes and the document two posts above
                                • Nittany Lion Opener (University Park, PA, USA) - NCAA D1 meeting; Penn State vs Rutgers vs Maryland
                                • Star Perche (Bordeaux, FRA) - international Pole Vault Meeting, part of the Perche Elite Tour; Renaud Lavillenie, the Collett brothers, Angelica Moser, Fanny Smets & Femke Pluim head the fields; A TV-quality live stream is promised using 6 cameras, slow-mo replays & commentators
                                • H-Town Speedcity Series #1 (Houston, TX, USA) - NCAA D1 meeting; Houston vs Tulane vs Houston Baptist vs North Texas vs Uni of Texas at San Antonio; Despite the name of the meeting, there is a full program of events
                                • USD Invitational (Vermillion, SD, USA) - NCAA D1 meeting; South Dakota vs Drake vs South Dakota State vs Omaha
                                • Bison Team Cup Classic (Fargo, ND, USA) - NCAA D1 meeting; North Dakota State vs Northern Iowa vs North Dakota
                                • Mel Tjeerdsma Classic (Maryville, Missouri, USA) - NCAA D2 meeting; 12 teams competing
                                • Husker Triangular (Lincoln, Nebraska, USA) - NCAA D1 meeting; Nebraska vs Iowa vs Minnesota
                                • Crimson & Gold Invitational (Pittsburg, KS, USA) - NCAA D2 meeting; 15 teams competing; 300m flat track; I've taken a quick glance at some of the startlists and this is a pretty good quality D2 meeting; One of the teams is Dallas Baptist, alma mater of "LetsRun girl" Kelsey Bruce, and she now coaches track/cross-country there
                                • Bob Eubanks Open (Allendale, MI, USA) - NCAA D2 meeting; 300m flat track; Not a terribly good quality meeting with only 3 teams competing - Grand Valley State, Hope & Illinois-Springfield; This weekend the meetings In Pittsburg & Maryville would be a better bet for D2 but I expect Grand Valley's next few home meetings will pick up in quality

                                Next major post on Thursday 22nd for NCAA meetings on Friday & Saturday, Paris Indoor & American Track League on Sunday and hopefully another European meeting or two over the weekend.
