  • Added to the document, starting late Saturday night UK time is the Nagano Prefecture Ekiden, a mixed ekiden.

    Unfortunately, there was no live stream of Corrida Bulloise today. Sometimes these things happen - if no live stream has been confirmed by the time I post the document I usually go on what has happened in the past (i.e., the last few editions of Corrida Bulloise have been live streamed.) I will continue to look for on-demand recordings of the races though.

    It seems also that there may be no live stream for Sunday's La Mandria Cross in Italy which is a disappointment.​ I will confirm if that's the case tomorrow.


    • Live streams/broadcasts for Tuesday 22nd November to Thursday 24th November:

      late Tuesday into Wednesday
      • Ichinoseki-Morioka Ekiden AKA Nippo Ekiden (Ichinoseki to Morioka, JPN) - This is a decent municipal ekiden with 2 races, over 95km total for 21 senior Men's teams and over 49.2km total for 14 teams of Boys' High School athletes
      • The Manchester Road Race (Manchester, CT, USA) - WA Label race; 4.748 miles; There's some good names competing here including Butchart, Mantz, Patrick Dever, Weini Kelati & Cynthia Limo
      All the details and links at

      Next major post on Friday evening for a quieter weekend of streams that includes the likely loaded Queen's Ekiden in Japan (their Women's Corporate Ekiden Championship) and the next World Cross Country Tour Gold meeting in Alcobendas (ESP).​


      • Just a heads up ... The Liverpool round of the British Cross Challenge, which includes the Trials for the European XC Championships, is live on YouTube on Saturday.

        Also, I've seen the squad lists for the Queen's Ekiden and it is indeed likely to be (absolutely!) loaded. Just some of the big names entered are Ririka Hironaka, Nozomi Tanaka, Hitomi Shintani (nee Niiya), Mao Ichiyama, Pauline Kamulu
        ​, Ai Hosoda, Sayaka Sato, Kaede Hagitani, Rina Goto & Yuka Ando.


        • Live streams/broadcasts for Saturday 26th November to Monday 28th November:

          There's a feast of cross country on the streams this weekend with 3 national trials/championships and 2 World Tour meetings!

          Sorry, I don't have time for many teaser notes tonight but, for most of the events, there are good previews linked in the document below.

          Finally, due to other commitments I won't be able to make any necessary edits or updates to the document until Sunday afternoon.

          • Hachioji Long Distance Time Trials (Machida, JPN) - Loaded Men's 10,000m meeting
          • German Cross Country Championships (Löningen, GER)
          • British Athletics Cross Challenge Series Round 3 incl Trials for European Championships (Liverpool, GBR)
          • Canadian Cross Country Championships (Ottawa, ON, CAN)
          • Victorian Track Relay Championships (Box Hill, VIC, AUS)
          Saturday to Sunday
          • Nippon Sports Science University Long Distance Meeting AKA Nittai University Time Trials (Yokohama, JPN)
          • Queen's Ekiden AKA Japanese Women's Corporate Ekiden Championship (Sendai, JPN) - This the best Women's Ekiden every year and it's absolutely loaded! There are various viewing options for this detailed in the document
          • San Sebastián Marathon & Half Marathon (San Sebastián, ESP)
          • Marathon de La Rochelle Serge Vigot (La Rochelle, FRA) - No idea who's competing here but it's usually a quality race with course records of 2:07:13 and 2:23:38
          • Cross Internacional de la Constitución Alcobendas - Memorial Antonio Rodriguez Benavente (Alcobendas, ESP) - World Cross Country Tour Gold meeting; Nadia Battocletti is amongst those in action here. This is a really nice and challenging course - quite twisty-turny and a fair amount of elevation changes. However, for the last 2 years the live stream hasn't covered the steep downhill followed by the steep uphill - you can see those sections briefly at the 12 seconds & 19 seconds points of the Course Preview video linked in the document. Otherwise, the streaming coverage is quite good
          • International Warandecross (Tilburg, NED) - World Cross Country Tour Silver meeting; The first time this is being live streamed
          • Firenze Marathon (Florence, ITA)
          All the details and links at

          Next major post possibly on Wed 31 Nov, but more likely on Thu 1 Dec for Friday's NCAA D2 Cross Country Championships.​


          • Live stream for Friday 2nd December:

            • NCAA D2 Cross Country Championships (University Place, WA, USA)
            All the details and links at

            Next major post tomorrow (Friday) evening for the weekend's streams including the Valencia Marathon, the Cross de la Constitución de Aranda de Duero in Spain, more Ekidens and the Course de l’Escalade road races through the hilly old town in Geneva.​


            • Added to the latest document above are on-demand videos of yesterday's Cross Champs in Austin, Texas (a World XC Tour Gold meeting). To avoid confusion, it's not their national championships (they're in January). There were strong fields - see the Previews linked in the document.


              • Live streams/broadcasts for Saturday 3rd December to Sunday 4th December:

                • Shimabara Student Ekiden AKA Kyushu University Ekiden Championship (Shimabara, JPN) - Men's University Ekiden; This is a decent quality race and has 23 teams entered
                • Shizuoka Municipal Ekiden (Shizuoka, JPN) - Another fun municipal ekiden featuring all ages of runners. There's 37 teams competing (25 cities and 12 towns). Run over the marathon distance, the course record is 2:09:29 (Gotemba City in 2019) so it's a good quality event
                • Albie Thomas Mile incl Australian Mile Championships (Georges Hall, NSW, AUS) - Track meeting; The headline mile races are supported by other events at shorter distances. In the Men's mile Joseph Deng faces a half-decent field but the Women's mile looks more interesting with Thornton-Bott, Holly Campbell, Winkcup & Hancock-Cameron
                • Spanish U20 Clubs Indoor Championships - Trofeo Antonio Ferrer (Antequera, ESP) - Our first indoor action of the winter! The fields aren't super-deep but there's some good athletes on show
                • Nike Cross Nationals (Portland, OR, USA) - This is the first of two US national High School Championships with the other next weekend; I haven't been following the HS scene in the US but I do know the Newbury Park boys are very, very good. However, the Previews linked in the document cover it pretty well
                • Nippon Sports Science University Long Distance Meeting AKA Nittai University Time Trials (Yokohama, JPN) - The Women's 5000 "A" race is perhaps the pick of the action here with a number of good young Kenyans such as Hellen Ekalale and Naomi Muthoni Kariuki and some good young Japanese such as Narumi Kobayashi & Yuna Arai; Hopefully that race is one of the races uploaded by the fan who does a good job of filming them
                • Marathon Bangkok & Half Marathon Bangkok (Bangkok, THA) - WA Label race; These Thai road races don't seem to provide info on the elite entries so I have no idea who's competing. Since it's a WA Label race I'd expect some East Africans to line up
                • 10k Bangkok (Bangkok, THA) - WA Label race; Ditto the above!
                • Kumamoto Kosa 10 Mile Official Road Race (Kosa, JPN) - Before the 10 Mile there's a Women's 5km in which Nozomi Tanaka is entered (the girl loves to get out and race!). The 10 Mile field is good and includes star-steepler Ryuji Miura, Inoue & Shitara (both 2:06 marathoners), Benard Koech & Jonathan Ndiku
                • Fukuoka International Marathon (Fukuoka, JPN) - WA Elite Label race; Men's-only race; There's a good field here with 5 sub-2:07 athletes including Yemane Tsegay & twice world champ, Abel Kirui. Australia's Brett Robinson will be seeking to go a bit further under 2:10 after his recent marathon debut in London
                • Valencia Marathon (Valencia, ESP) - WA Elite Platinum Label race; No need to big this up! All the talk is of a possible Women's WR by Letesenbet Gidey on her debut at this distance. Tamirat Tola leads the Men's field
                • Cross Internacional de la Constitución de Aranda de Duero (Aranda de Duero, ESP) - The Women's race looks the more competitive of the two senior races with the likes of Cristina Ruiz, Laura Luengo, Cristina Espejo and LuckySpikes faves Azucena Diaz & Beatriz Alvarez (both of them race a ton, especially on the country). Blanca Fernandez is also entered but she was way, way off the pace at Cross Italica recently. Thierry Ndikuwemenayo is the hot favourite in the Men's race, up against some good Spaniards including Dani Arce, Yahya Aouina & David Bascuñana; The coverage on the stream usually isn't the best (a couple of spots on the course are without cameras) but it's still watchable and easy enough to follow the races
                • Course de l’Escalade (Geneva, SUI) - WA Label races - 7.32km road races; I love this event! The literal translation of the name is "Climbing race" and it's a very good description. The separate Men's & Women's elite races run 3 hilly laps of the old town and, as usual, the fields are pretty strong. The contingent of East Africans including Dominic Lobalu (12:52 5000 PB), Boniface Kibiwott & Helen Bekele Tola are joined by a number of very good Europeans such as Gressier, Ringer, Raess, Belhadj, Louis Gilavert (FRA), Maureen Koster, Schlumpf, Chiara Scherrer (SUI) & Lore Hoffmann going well over her usual distance again
                • California International Marathon incl USATF Marathon Championships (Sacramento, USA) - Whilst not the deepest fields, these races look competitive and include the likes of Noah Droddy, Futsum Zeinasellassie, Elaina Tabb & Paige Stoner
                All the details and links at

                Next major post on Wednesday evening for Thursday's good Cantimpalos cross country meeting in Spain.​


                • On-demand videos have now been linked in the latest document above for Nike Cross Nationals, the Nippon Uni distance meeting (also Results link), the Valencia Marathon, Course de l'Escalade and the USA Marathon Championships. I will continue to check YouTube for a broadcast recording of the Fukuoka Marathon.


                  • Live stream for Thursday 8th December:

                    Mid-week cross country. Well, this is a treat for fans of Spanish cross country! Anyone else out there? ... ...

                    • Cross Nacional Ayuntamiento de Cantimpalos (Cantimpalos, ESP) - Good fields have been assembled here. The Men's field is headed by Adel Mechaal, Santiago Catrofe (URU), Yahya Aouina, David Basucnana, Miguel Barzola (ARG), "Chiki" Perez, Raul Celada and (boo!) Ilias Fifa. The Women's race features most of the best Spaniards not racing at the European Champs - the likes of Cristina Ruiz, Laura Luengo, Esther Navarrete, Lidia Campo, Laura Priego, Nuria Lugueros, Irene Pelayo (still going strong at 42) and more. Many of them are returning from Sunday's race in Aranda de Duero won by Cristina Ruiz, the first time she'd beaten Laura Luengo this XC season in 4 races. Idaira Prieto was the surprise winner in Cantimpalos last year but I think she'll have a tough time repeating that against this field. Cristina Espejo had an awful race on Sunday but should be hoping to bounce back and contend for the podium here. It's not the most exciting of courses - very flat mostly but probably more uneven under foot than it seems - however it is a very open course with no visual obstructions so the streaming coverage is very good
                    All the details and links at

                    Next major post on Friday evening for the weekend's streams including the European Cross Country Championships, the Distance Challenge in Kyoto (a couple of loaded races there it seems), USA Clubs XC Championships, the Málaga Marathon and the Honolulu Marathon.​


                    • Live streams/broadcasts for Saturday 10th December to Sunday 11th December:

                      • Distance Challenge in Kyoto (Kyoto, JPN) - WA Continental Tour Challenger series; There's good fields for this track meeting. The race of the meeting looks like a really loaded Women's 5000m 'A' race with Ririka Hironaka, Nozomi Tanaka, Kaede Hagitani, Harumi Okamoto, Nanami Watanabe, and a host of good young Kenyans including Margaret Akidor (14:44 PB last month), Pauline Kamulu (30:20 at 10,000), Agnes Mwikali (14:53 PB) & Judy Jepngetich (14:56 PB) - the latter two just 19yo; The Women's 10,000 'A' race was loaded too but has suffered a number of high-profile withdrawals
                      • Kenyan Trials for World Cross Country Championships (Ruiru, KEN) - Of course there's stacked fields for this, covered pretty well in the Preview article linked in the document; The first 6 across the line make the team
                      • Champs Sports Cross Country Championships (San Diego, CA, USA) - After last weekend's Nike Cross Nationals this is the other US High School national championships, better known by its former sponsor name Footlocker. I haven't been following the US HS scene lately but the preview article seems to cover it quite well
                      • ?? Course Titzé de Noël (Sion, SUI) - International road races - W 5km & M 7km; This is the third and final race in the "Circuit de courses" series after last weekend's Course de l'Escalade and Corrida Bulloise a few weeks ago. Again the fields are good with all the East Africans from last week returning, including Dominic Lobalu & Boniface Kibiwott in the Men's race (1-2 in Geneva last week) and Kazanesh Baze, Helen Bekele Tola & Caroline Gitonga in the Women's. Augmenting these are a number of top Swiss athletes - Wanders, Le Guen, Schlumpf, Scherrer & Lore Hoffmann. Please note - I'm not certain it's being live streamed. Until COVID it always was streamed but then it wasn't last year ... I've included it in case it is being streamed again
                      Saturday into Sunday
                      • Suginami Junior High School Ekidens (Suginami nr Tokyo, JPN) - I know nothing about these particular Ekidens and can't find much info except that each of the separate Girls & Boys races has 5 legs. From the winning times last year I'm guessing the races total around just 11km or 11.5km
                      • Málaga Marathon & Half Marathon (Málaga, ESP) - The Marathon is a WA Label race; The fields are good here with several sub-2:07 men headed by Jonathan Maiyo (2:04:56 PB). Edwin Soi & Hassan Chahdi (FRA) are also entered. In the Women's race Caroline Kilel heads three sub-2:25 athletes and also competing is Finland's Alisa Vainio (2:29:56 PB)
                      • European Cross Country Championships (Turin, ITA) - No need to big this up!
                      • Honolulu Marathon (Honolulu, Hawaii, USA) - WA Label race; There's very small but good elite fields in both races (4 invited athletes in each). Three of the 4 men have sub-2:05 PBs with Barnabus Kiptum's the most recent (2:04:17 in 2021). Asayech Ayalew Bere is the fastest of the Women with 2:22:52 from this year. Canada's Lanni Marchant is also competing

                      Next major post on Wednesday evening for the Zatopek:10 track meeting in Melbourne.​


                      • There is now a TV broadcast recording on YouTube of the Queen's Ekiden (Japanese Corporate Women's Ekiden Championship) that took place on 27th November (uploaded by the TV channel themselves) - (The ad breaks are removed hence the occasional missing 2-3 mins)
                        It's always the most loaded of any women's race in Japan.​

                          Starting around 30:30 into the video here was an epic battle between Ririka Hironaka & Hitomi Niiya on the 10.9km third leg (Hronaka - red vest, bib 4 - starting around 3s ahead of Niiya - blue vest, bib 1 ). Race leader Mao Ichiyama started 47s ahead of Hironaka.

                      • Live stream for Thursday 15th December:

                        • Zátopek:10 incl Australian 10,000m Championships (Melbourne, VIC, AUS) - In the Women's race at this famous old meeting both Rose Davies & Izzi Batt-Doyle return having had good battles in the last 2 editions. Caitlin Adams, Natalie Rule & Lauren Ryan are also amongst the field. Missing from the Men's race are the absolute best Aussies but it's still a decent field with Rayner, Liam Adams, McEntee, Buchanan & Ed Goddard. On the undercard there's the U20 3000s, which always feature many of Australia's best juniors, and a senior 800 and 1500s, the Women's 1500 the best of them with Hansen, Hancock-Cameron & Holly Campbell

                        Next major post on Friday evening for the weekend's World XC Tour Gold meeting in Venta de Baños, the Elite Label marathons in Abu Dhabi & Taipei and possibly the Cardiff Met Christmas Classic indoor meeting.​

                      • Live streams/broadcasts for Saturday 17th December to Sunday 18th December:

                        • Abu Dhabi Marathon (Abu Dhabi, UAE) - WA Elite Label race; There's very good fields for this with the Men's field headed by 5 sub-2:06 men including Dickson Chumba and the Women's with 4 women at 2:21 or faster - Angela Tanui, Eunice Chumba, Helen Bekele Tola & former World Champ, Mare Dibaba
                        • Night of 5's (Auckland, NZL) - The 5000 "A" races are WA Continental Tour Challenger Series events; The field for the Men's 5000 is domestically strong with Oli Chignell, 3:31 man Sam Tanner, Julian Oakley & Eric Speakman. Camille Buscomb, Hannah Miller & Laura Nagel lead the field in the Women's 'A' race; Some of the supporting events have decent fields such as the Women's 100, 800 'A' race and Pole Vault
                        • Bangsaen21 Half Marathon (Chon Buri, THA) - WA Elite Label race; No idea who's competing here. Last year it was domestic-only but hopefully it's back to having an international field
                        • Taipei Marathon (Taipei City, TPE) - WA Elite Label race; There's small but good fields here including two 2:06 men, Lani Rutto & Edwin Kiprop Kiptoo. The Women's field includes 2021 winner Alemtsehay Asefa (2:24:42 PB), two women who've run 2:27/2:28 PBs this year - Lilian Jelagat & Ayantu Abera Demisse - Mongolia's Khishigsaikhan Galbadrakh (2:32 PB) and Sweden's Hanna Lindholm
                        • Kolkata 25k December (Kolkata, IND) - WA Elite Label race; The fields are strong here, including Leonard Barsoton, Birhanu Legese, Andamlak Belihu (the guy who went sub-60 with Kipchoge for the first half in Berlin this year), Aras Kaya and on the Women's side Ashete Bekere, Zeineba Yimer & Mercyline Chelangat
                        • Japanese Junior High School Ekiden Championships AKA Shiga Ekiden (Shiga, JPN) - Two short Ekidens (12km total for the Girls and 18km for the Boys) for athletes who are typically 13 to 15 years old; 48 teams are competing in each race
                        • Cross Internacional de Venta de Baños (Venta de Baños, ESP) - WA Cross Country Tour Gold meeting; The fields here are domestically strong but lacking the volume of international entrants seen in previous editions. Rodrigue Kwizera (BDI) and Francine Niyonsaba will be the hot favourites
                        • Corrida Internationale de Houilles (Houilles, FRA) - 10km road race; WA Elite Label race; These multi-national elite fields are pretty loaded, especially on the Men's side including the likes of Amos Bett, Vincent Kibet, Lobalu, Amdouni and a number of other Europeans such as Gidey (IRL), Fitwi, Jonas Glans (SWE) & Phil Sesemann. Amongst the Women's field are Mercy Cherono, Alina Reh, Hanna Klein, Steph Twell & Diane van Es
                        • Carrera de Navidad'22 (Piélagos, ESP) - Road races on a 1.1km loop, the senior races (W 3.3km & M 6.6km) taking place after dark; 42yo Irene Pelayo is having a great winter, including beating a good field at the Cantimpalos cross country last week and she heads the field here along with 2008 Olympian Zulema Fuentes-Pila. There's also a decent Men's field including Ivan Sainz and good youngster Mohamed Attaoui

                        Next major post on the evening of Wednesday 21st for all the action between then and December 31st.​

                          Good fields for tonight's Bangsaen21 on YouTube, especially in the Women's which includes Hellen Obiri, Bekelech Gudeta, Sandrafelis Chebet Tuei and Charlotte Purdue. See the link in the document for the full elite fields.

                      • Live streams/broadcasts for Thursday 22nd December to Saturday 31st December:

                        Over the Christmas period I'll try to make some timely updates to the document below but I can't promise. However, if my travel goes to plan on New Year's Eve I should be able to make some updates before that evening's races in Spain and Japan.

                        As usual in the document, any stream links that are preceded by a ? are unconfirmed and based on where the event has been streamed in previous years.

                        Anyway, I hope everyone has a great Christmas!

                        Thursday 22nd
                        • Victorian Milers Club Meet 2 (Box Hill, VIC, AUS) - 800m & 1500m; The big guns like Linden Hall, Catriona Bisset & Claudia Hollingsworth haven't started their seasons yet but the 800 'A' races here are decent including Ellie Sanford, Shanie Landen (ISR), Jack Lunn & Adam Pyke. The Men's 1500 'A' race isn't bad either
                        Friday 23rd
                        • Bahrain Royal Night Half Marathon (Manama, BRN) - WA Label race; No idea who's competing but there's sure to be a number of very good athletes; Last year the coverage was pretty poor so I hope that's improved!
                        Saturday 24th
                        • Nippon Sports Science University Women's Long Distance Meeting AKA Nittai University Women's Time Trials (Yokohama, JPN) - Women's 3000s and 5000s on the programme here. I've no idea of the entry lists yet but it's usually a good meeting
                        Sunday 25th
                        • Japanese High School Girls' Ekiden Championship AKA Mainichi Ekiden (Kyoto, JPN) - For this and the following Boys' race the athletes are aged 15 to 18 and it's always a good watch to see what up-and-coming talent there is in Japan. There's some stellar leg records (see link in the document) such as Hitomi Niiya's 18:52 for the first leg of 6km (Ririka Hironaka ran 19:01 on that leg four years ago) and 2021 World U20 3000m champion Theresiah Muthoni's (KEN) crazy last leg record; Sendai Scholarship High School (bib 4) from Miyagi are the reigning champions, winning with 67:16 for the Half Marathon distance last year; On the TV captions, numbers after names indicate which year they're in at High School - 1 corresponds to them being 15/16yo and 3 to being 17/18yo
                        • Japanese High School Boys' Ekiden Championship AKA Mainichi Ekiden (Kyoto, JPN) - Ditto and the leg records for this are just as strong as for the Girls; Sera High School (bib 34) from Hiroshima are the reigning champions, winning with 2:01:21 for the Marathon distance last year
                        Friday 30th
                        • Mt Fuji University Women's Team Invitational Ekiden AKA Fujisan Joshi Ekiden (Fujinomiya to Fuji, JPN) - This is a terrific race featuring the very best of the Japanese collegians (though it remains to be seen if Seira Fuwa runs after all her injury issues this year). 24 teams participate - the top 12 teams from the All Japan University Women's Ekiden Championship in late October, 10 teams based on the total 5000m PBs for 7 athletes, an All Japan University Select Team, which is selected from 8 districts nationwide, and a Shizuoka Prefecture Student Select team (Fuji is in Shizuoka prefecture). The favourites will be Meijo University (in the all burgundy kit); The last leg (8.3km) is really, really tough, rising approx 130m over the last 4km with the result that 32/33 minute 10k athletes are reduced to almost 4 minutes per kilometre between 5km and 8km; On the TV captions, numbers after names indicate which year they're in at University - and it's not like in the States where 4th year NCAA athletes are sometimes 23 to 25yo. A Japanese 4th year student is highly likely to be 21 or 22yo as you'd expect

                        • Corrida Internacional de São Silvestre (São Paulo, BRA) - International 15km road race; Always some good names here but I wonder if not having a WA Label this year will affect the quality of the fields
                        • BOclassic Alto Adige - Corsa di San Silvestro (Bolzano, ITA) - M 10km + W 5km international road races (laps of 1.25km); WA Label road races; Always good fields here and Yeman Crippa is definitely entered; It's a twisty, turny course run mainly on flat cobbles through the old town so don't expect fast times. The Course Records are 15:22 (Dawit Seyaum, 2021) & 28:02 (Phillimon Hanneck, 1991)
                        • Cursa dels Nassos (Barcelona, ESP) - International 5km road race & 10km; The 5km is a WA Label road race; The event name translates from Catalan as "Race of the Noses" and the logo of the event was, until this year, a big nose on stick legs, running. In 2021 Aregawi & Taye broke the 5km World Records here (12:49 & 14:19). This year Jakob Ingebrigtsen (plus his brothers) & Gressier are entered in the 5km whilst in the Women's 5km Grovdal & Klosterhalfen are set to face off again, chasing Hassan's European Record 14:44. No doubt there'll also be a number of top East Africans too
                        • San Silvestre Vallecana Internacional (Madrid, ESP) - WA Elite Label race; There's always strong fields here. So far I only know that Mohamed Katir is one of the entrants
                        Saturday 31st into Sunday 1st January
                        • Japanese Corporate Men's Ekiden Championship AKA The New Year Ekiden (Maebashi/Gunma, JPN) - Just like the Women's equivalent a few weeks ago (the Queen's Ekiden) this is always absolutely loaded, this year including Suguru Osako, Yuta Bando, a load of other very good Japanese and a load of good Kenyans (though in common with most national or regional Ekidens the Kenyans are only allowed to run the shortest leg, in this case leg 2)

                        Next major post on Sunday 1st January for the big Hakone Ekiden.​
