  • An update of some streaming today (all now updated in the latest document linked below):

    1) It turns out that the TV broadcast of the Spanish Championships was also shown on the Spanish Federation's channel (no geo-blocking). Hopefully the same happens tomorrow.
    2) Similar thing with the Italian Championships - the section that was on TV was actually streamed by the Italian Federation on YouTube too, but they didn't have the stream link on their YouTube "home page" (the link is now in the document). Again, the same may happen tomorrow?
    3) There was an unexplained break in the streaming of the Balkan Indoor Championships after 1 hour 10 minutes. It resumed, for the rest of the meeting, just before the Women's 1500.

        • Southeastern Conference (SEC) Indoor Championships (Fayetteville, AR, USA) - NCAA D1 conference; This is one of the "Power 5" conferences in D1; Not live but is being shown later on a channel that we can watch

            • Should point out that the European Athletics feed has an integrated (ie main) feed but also multifeeds for seemingly all the individual events. If we get it....

                Yes, thank you. I should have mentioned that. I've now added it to the notes above.

            • Live streams/broadcasts for Thursday 11th March to Monday 15th March:

              The NCAA D1 Indoor Championships is taking place from Thursday to Saturday but is only live on ESPN3, a channel not available on the internet. However, there are highlights (early morning!) on ESPNU, a channel we can view.
              The NCAA D2 Indoor Championships, however, are being live streamed in full as are the NCAA D1 Cross Country Championships.

              There's the possibility of another event or two being added to the roster.

              • Canberra Track Classic (Canberra, AUS) - WA Continental Tour Bronze meeting; Some strong domestic fields here
              Thursday to Saturday
              • NCAA D2 Indoor Championships (Birmingham, AL, USA) - Always a good meeting
              • Sydney Track Classic incl Australian 5000m Championships (Sydney, AUS) - WA Continental Tour Bronze meeting; Again some good fields here; In the Women's 5000 Davies, Batt-Doyle, Seccafien & Gregson return from the Zatopek:10 to do battle again
              • Nagoya Women's Marathon (Nagoya, JPN) - WA Elite Platinum Label; Not as strong as usual but still good, including the likes of Mizuki Matsuda (2:21:47 Osaka winner last year) & Sayaka Sato (2:23 on her marathon debut here last year)
              • Spanish 20km Race Walking Championships (Murcia, ESP) - After the Japanese & Chinese championships the Spanish champs is probably the strongest national RW championships; Strong domestic fields but also a very good contingent of international guests including Perseus Karlstrom & a number of very good Central Americans & Lithuanians
              • Italian Cross Country Championships AKA Festa del Cross (Campi Bisenzio, ITA) - Decent fields in both senior races, including Jacob Kiplimo
              • NCAA D1 Indoor Championships (Fayetteville, AR, USA) - Highlights only and at a very inconvenient time! However, there are also highlights on BT ESPN on the afternoon of Wednesday 17th
              • NCAA D1 Cross Country Championships - 2020 edition (Stillwater, OK, USA) - Despite almost clashing with the Indoor championships I think the fields will still be very strong
              Monday to Friday
              • National Federation Cup Senior Championships (Patiala, IND) - Strong domestic fields for this, which I think is the equivalent of our Inter-Counties
              All the links & details at

              Next major post on Wednesday.

                Hiya. The NCAA championships can be viewed on ESPN. They have a deal at the moment 7 days free subscription. So sign up and cancel on Sunday. There is full playback. I’ve watched all the events I missed over the past two days.

                Ah, OK, that's good! I just presumed you had to be US-based for any offer like that. When I've tried similar things in the past it's always asked me what TV provider I have - Dish, Comcast, Infinity etc (i.e., all US TV providers.)

            • The NCAA highlights do get at least one outing on ESPN UK - Wed 17 March at 13:45. 😕

                I think they tend to show a lot of College Basketball at this time of year "March Madness". They usually have live coverage of the outdoors NCAA

                Yeah, you are right. Some years we get lucky with how the calendar falls, just not this one.

                Thanks, Grassmarket. Now updated in the document, and previews for the Women's NCAA XC & the Spanish 20km RW Championships also added.

            • It turns out that the senior races at the Italian XC Championships were live streamed by the Italian Federation on YouTube (i.e., not only on Rai Sport). The links have been updated in the latest document above.

              A reminder that the NCAA D1 XC Championships are live streaming tomorrow at 5.30pm, on what NCAA XC coaches are calling the "hardest NCAA course in living history" !

                There’s a hill!


              • Aargh! I've been caught out by the clocks going forward 1 hour in the US this weekend gone. So, the NCAA XC broadcast actually started at 4.30pm instead!


                • Live streams for Thursday 18th March:

                  There's also a possibility of live streaming for the Carolina Spring Break Classic in Puerto Rico (Thursday to Saturday) which features a few big name sprinters.
                  • Victorian Milers Club Meet #5 (Murrumbeena, VIC, AUS) - 800 & 1500; Not a huge number of big names for the last of this series but the Georgias, Griffith & Hansen, are competing as is Claudia Hollingsworth (aged 15y 11m) who ran an astonishing 2:36.7 for 1000m a couple of weeks ago.

                  Next major post on Friday for a weekend that includes the Campaccio cross country and loaded 20km & 50km Race Walking races at the Dudinská 50 in Slovakia.


                  • Live streams/broadcasts for Saturday 20th March to Sunday 21st March:

                    Amongst other things, there's a smorgasbord of top Race Walking events this weekend.

                    For anyone tuning into to some of the Race Walking (it's possible to watch it all since 3 of the 4 events are on YouTube!), here's a reminder of the Olympic Standards - although quite a lot of the athletes competing this weekend already have the Standard:

                    Men's 20km: 1:21:00
                    Women's 20km: 1:31:00 (in Japan it's 1:30:00)
                    Men's 50km: 3:50:00
                    ... And since there's also 35km races going on in Ukraine, the 2022 Worlds Standards are:
                    Men's 35km: 2:33:00
                    Women's 35km: 2:54:00

                    For the two NCAA D2 XC Championships streams, I can't vouch for the quality of the coverage since they've not live streamed these championships before.

                    • Chinese Winter Walking Championships incl Olympic Trials (Huangshan, CHN) - With the top 3 in each race booking their flight to Tokyo, all the big names are competing here; The men's 20km starts at midnight tonight; On a 1km loop
                    • Dudinská 50 (Dudince, SVK) - European Race Walking Permit meeting; The 20km & 50km races here are really loaded! The fields (if they all make it to Dudince) showcase the strength of South & Central American race walking - Colombia, Mexico & Guatemala in particular have sent all their best athletes for this; There is also some good Europeans competing; On a 1km loop
                    • Ukrainian Winter Race Walking Championships (Lutsk, UKR) - Ukraine is quite strong in RW and all their best athletes except new mother Inna Kashyna are here; On a 1km loop
                    • Mountain East Conference (MEC) Cross Country Championships - 2020 edition (Wheeling, WV, USA) - NCAA D2 conference
                    • Grand Prix Sudamericano Estrella Puente (Montevideo, URU) - Provision of startlists and timetables for most of the South American meetings is poor but the preview says that athletes from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia & Ecuador are also entered
                    • Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Cross Country Championships - 2020 edition (Lock Haven, PA, USA) - NCAA D2 conference; I've watched the track & field championships for this conference before and it's a pretty decent conference
                    Late Saturday night into Sunday
                    • All Japan Noboru Race Walking Tournament incl Japanese University Race Walking Championships (Nomi, JPN) - Normally this is the Asian Race Walking Championships, incorporating these other races; There's some big names in the Men's race with Takahashi, Matsunaga, Kawano & Koga (Yamanishi has withdrawn); Sadly, the Women's race is missing Okada & Fujii; On a 1km loop
                    • Niigata Half Marathon (Niigata, JPN) - Not sure yet who is entered here but it's usually a decent quality race
                    • Citylauf Invitational Dresden (Dresden, GER) - Decent international fields for these 10km, Half Marathon & Marathon races; The Half Marathons look strongest with Moen, Kipchumba, Meucci, Fitwi, Petros, Naert & Fabienne Schlumpf amongst those competing; For the Marathon, I think most of the best are holding off for the Hamburg Marathon in 3 weeks' time or the Swiss Marathon Championships in a fortnight
                    • Grand Prix Sudamericano Darwin Piñeyrúa (Montevideo, URU) - See the notes for the Grand Prix Sudamericano Estrella Puente above
                    • Campaccio International Cross Country (San Giorgio su Legnano, ITA) - WA Cross Country Permit; Some very good names competing here - amongst them Jacob Kiplimo, Oscar Chelimo, 2020 winner Mogos Tuemay, Lilian Rengeruk, Winfred Yavi & Tsehay Gemechu

                    • Added to the roster for Sunday is international road racing in Dresden.


                      • Live stream for Thursday 25th March:
                        • Melbourne Track Classic (Melbourne, AUS) - a few decent events here (e.g., both the 1500s) but, in general, the meeting has seemed to suffer from no longer being a WA permit meeting and being up against the WA Silver meeting in Brisbane on Saturday

                        Next major post tomorrow (Thursday) for the weekend's events including Friday's British Olympic Marathon Trials and the Cinque Mulini.
