  • Live streams/broadcasts for Friday 9th September:

    Friday to Sunday
    • Japanese University Team T&F Championships AKA Emperor's Gift Cup (Kyoto, JPN) - Always a good championships; The big story here is the return to action of Seira Fuwa (30:45 for 10,000 last year, aged 18!) who's been out since February with achilles issues. She's entered in the 5,000 and 10,000 and in the latter faces the previous collegiate record-holder, Narumi Kobayashi, though Kobayashi hasn't been in great form over the last 18 months or so. Ryuji Miura goes in the Men's 5000 & 3000SC
    • South American U18 Championships (São Paulo, BRA) - No idea of the fields here but I think it's taken pretty seriously. There'll be 273 athletes from 10 nations competing
    • Zagreb City Challenge (Zagreb, CRO) - City square meeting - W PV, W TJ & M LJ; part of the Boris Hanžeković Memorial WA Gold meeting; Tina Sutej, Nea Filipic and Tajay Gayle lead the entries

        The On Athletics Club (incl Mills & Hughes) - see below - didn't make it to the BTC Track Night in Berlin.

    • Added to today's events in the document above is the BTC Track Night in Berlin. Mostly it's club runners being paced by top Nike stars such as Keely, Jakob & Stewy McSweyn!
      However, both the 1500 'A' races are decent. The Men's features George Mills and some other good athletes, and the Women's (paced by Keely) includes Cari Hughes and a couple of 4:10/4:12 Germans.​


      • Live streams/broadcasts for Saturday 17th September to Monday 19th September:

        Yes, done before midnight!

        Only the briefest of teaser notes this time.

        Saturday to Sunday
        • Clash of the Clubs (Castellón, ESP) - European DNA U20 Clubs competition; Clubs from 12 nations are competing, including Blackheath & Bromley. There's 4 matches - the 2 qualifiers on Saturday and the A & B Finals on Sunday
        • Décastar (Talence, FRA) - World Combined Events Tour Gold meeting; Good fields but not stellar. No Brits competing
        • Italian Club Championships Gold Division Final (Brescia, ITA) - There's a lot of good names competing here
        • ? Toulouse Capitole Perche (Toulouse, FRA) - International street Pole Vault meeting; OK fields headed by Nilsen & Sutej
        • ? European Road Race U20 - Trofeo Opitergium (Oderzo, ITA) - WA Elite Label races; Always a nice event through the old town. Teams from 14 European countries are competing, including England teams in both the Women's 5km & the Men's 10km
        • 10km El Pendo (Camargo, ESP) - Pretty good domestic fields. There's 2 streams, one for the head of each race
        • ? Corsa Internazionale Oderzo Città Archeologica (Oderza, ITA) - International Men's 10km road race; Decent, mostly domestic, field this year
        • Sydney Marathon (Sydney, NSW, AUS) - WA Elite Label race; Very nice fields here, e.g., with 11 sub-2:25 women entered
        • The Great Cow Harbor 10k incl USATF 10km Championships (Northport, NY, USA) - Pretty good fields here
        • Porto Half Marathon (Porto, POR) - WA Label race; No idea who's racing but the fields should be good
        • Dam tot Damloop (Amsterdam to Zaandam, NED) - International 10 miles road race; Good fields with big names especially in the Women's race (which starts 6 mins before the Men's), namely Margaret Chelimo Kipkemboi & Lonah Salpeter
        • French Half Marathon Championships (Saint-Omer, FRA) - Not the strongest of fields. Florian Carvalho & Melody Julien are the favourites
        • Copenhagen Half Marathon (Copenhagen, DEN) - WA Elite Label race; Loaded fields for both races!
        • Tokai area Selection race for All Japan University Women's Ekiden (Okazaki, JPN) - 5000m track race; Ekiden season is soon upon us and I'll be trying to bring you as many as possible (though you'll see this selection race is an individual 5000m track race)
        All the details and links at

        Next major post on Thursday 22nd for the Japanese Corporate T&F Championships starting on Friday, usually a pretty loaded meeting.​


        • Live streams/broadcasts for Friday 23rd September:

          • Kansai region University Women's Ekiden (Kobe, JPN) - I really enjoyed this last year. It's a qualifying race for the Japanese University Women's Ekiden (AKA Morino Miyako Ekiden) at the end of October - 18 teams are competing here. Seven or 8 of the 26 teams that compete at Morino Miyako usually come from this region (containing big cities such as Osaka, Kyoto & Kobe) so the standard of this Kansai race is good. Ritsumeikan University & Osaka Gakuin University are already qualified by virtue of having finished Top 8 at the national race last year. Then the next 5 highest placed teams in this Kansai Ekiden will also qualify. The 3.25km loop used for each of the legs is deceptively tough with a lot of undulation - long gradual downhills and long gradual drags uphill, as well as a nasty little kicker before re-entering the 'stadium' at the end of each lap. Last year's winners were Ritsumeikan University (burgundy vests with a white "R"; bib 1) and the 2020 victors were Kansai University (white vest with navy stripe across & navy shorts; bib 3). Osaka University of Arts are also usually up there in the top 4 or 5 - they'll be in the red vest and shorts with bib 2. The fastest winning time from the last 7 years was 1:39:12 by Kyoto University in 2017 but the course record is 1:36:58 by Ritsumeikan Uni in 2010
          • Tokai region Selection races for Japanese University Men's & Women's Ekidens (Okazaki, JPN) - Women's 5000m track race & Men's 10,000m; This is the event that was supposed to happen last Monday but was postponed due to the typhoon. The Men's selection race has been added to the programme. To determine the winning teams who each qualify for the national University Ekidens, the times are tallied for 6 athletes
          Friday to Sunday
          • Japanese Corporate T&F Championships (Gifu, JPN) - A quick perusal of the entry/start lists should give you an impression of the depth of these events, e.g., every one of the 23 men in the 10,000 'A' race has run sub-28 and in the Women's 5000 'A' race there's 7 sub-15 athletes including Nozomi Tanaka who's also in the 1500; Whilst a lot of the top names are here, there's a few missing including Ririka Hironaka & Mao Ichiyama who both only got back to racing last weekend at a time trials meeting
          All the details and links at

          Next major post tomorrow (Friday) evening for the weekend's events including the Berlin Marathon.​


          • Other than the ongoing Japanese Corporate T&F Championships detailed above, there are no free live streaming events for Saturday 24th.

            We've been thwarted for the two Saturday possibilities:
            a) the only available unofficial TV channel stream for the Run Your City 10k (Jo'burg) is currently not working and
            b) Lidingöloppet, the first leg of this winter's World Cross Country Tour, is only being shown on a subscription TV channel in Sweden.

            So, the next major post will now be tomorrow (Saturday) evening for Sunday's events. That gives more time for info to become available - at present it's a bit lacking for some of Sunday's events that are usually streamed/broadcast.​


            • Live streams/broadcasts for Sunday 25th September:

              There's a lot of good events happening on Sunday but quite a few of them not being streamed.

              • Ongoing Japanese Corporate T&F Championships (Gifu, JPN) - See 2 posts above; Has to be watched live since they're not archiving the YouTube streams until 2 weeks' time (after the TV highlights broadcast)
              • Okukuma Ekiden AKA Good Hearts Cup (Taragi to Asagiri, JPN) - Ekiden for Men's Corporate & University teams and for Boys High School athletes; There's some good athletes competing here so it should be a nice race
              • Berlin Marathon (Berlin, GER) - WA Elite Platinum Label race; The headline news is Kipchoge attacking his WR. Behind him only Guye Adola has broken 2:05. The Women's field looks more competitive with 7 sub-2:21 athletes headed by Keira D'Amato. Rosemary Wanjiru makes her debut at this distance. She has a 65:34 Half PB and 29:50 for 10km. There's also a load of good Japanese athletes competing here
              • Brașov Running Festival 10km (Brașov, ROU) - WA Elite Label race; Strong fields here headed by Nicholas Kipkorir (AKA Kimeli) & Weldon Langat and Sheila Chepkirui & Faith Cherono (30:50 this year at age 19) as well as several East African women around the 31 minute mark
              • Milla de Madrid (Madrid, ESP) - International road miles; Good mainly domestic fields but supplemented by Kamar Etiang (KEN) in the Men's. He'll race the likes of Igancio Fontes & Dani Arce. In the Women's race Marta Perez heads the field that also includes Marta Garcia and Spain's 3 promising 20/21yo 800m athletes - Lucia Pinacchio, Marina Martinez & Daniela Garcia
              • Běchovice – Praha incl Czech 10km Road Championships (Běchovice to Prague, CZE) - Not deep fields but the Women's race should be a good race between Eugene marathon representatives Moira Stewartová & Tereza Hrochová

              Next major post on Wednesday evening for the South American U23 Championships starting on Thursday and the Chile Pepper Festival NCAA XC meeting on Friday.​


              • Live streams/broadcasts for Thursday 29th September to Friday 30th September:

                Thursday to Saturday
                • South American U23 T&F Championships (Cascavel, BRA) - No idea of the entry lists yet but it seems like it will be decent
                • Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival (Fayetteville, AR, USA) - NCAA D1, D2 & NAIA meeting; This meeting isn't as strong as it used to be. On the Women's side this year there's one nationally Top 25 ranked team, Arkansas, and two on the Men's side, Tulsa & Arkansas; There's a few more top D2 teams involved though

                Next major post on Friday evening for the weekend's events including the London Marathon, the Cardiff Half Marathon, the Great Scottish Run, the Athletics Challenge Cup meeting in Japan (Conti Tour Bronze) and other top road races such as the Giro al Sas & the 15k Nocturna Valencia.​
