  • Added to the latest document is the Internationaler Silvesterlauf Peuerbach road races in Austria on New Year's Eve. There's good fields for that as there are for all the other New Year's Eve races in the document. I've made a lot of updates to the listings for those races.

    • Live stream for events starting late on Sunday 1st January:

      Happy New Year, everyone!

      Late Sunday 1st to early Tuesday 3rd
      • Hakone Ekiden (Tokyo/Kanagawa, JPN) - This absolutely loaded Men's University Ekiden is Japan's biggest sporting event, attracting massive TV viewing figures; The JRN Preview article linked in the document does a very good job of previewing it all
      All the details and links at https://www.dropbox.com/s/n9797tzava...01-01.odt?dl=0

      Next major post on Thursday for Friday's Campaccio International Cross Country (World XC Tour Gold).​

      • Live streams/broadcasts for Friday 6th January:

        Friday
        • Supernova # 1 - Canberra Open 10,000m Walk (Canberra, AUS) - World Race Walking Tour Silver meeting; It's a very nice surprise that this is being live streamed for the first time and the Women's field is particularly strong with athletes from 12 countries entered (a lot of international race walkers winter in Australia at the national sports & nutrition institute). Amongst them are double European champ Antigoni Ntrismpioti, Jemima Montag (AUS), Raquel Gonzalez (ESP), Magaly Bonilla (ECU), Clemence Beretta (FRA) & Valentina Trapletti (ITA). The Men's race sees Perseus Karlstrom & Evan Dunfee face some of the best Australians such as Tingay, Cowley & Swan
        • Campaccio International Cross Country (San Giorgio su Legnano, ITA) - World Cross Country Tour Gold meeting; The fields are good without being quite as deep as most previous years. In the Women's race Margaret Kipkemboi faces Rahel Daniel (ERI) & Likina Amebaw (ETH). Marwa Bouzayani (TUN) who made a splash in the Steeple last year is an intriguing entrant. In the Men's race Oscar Chelimo lines up against Tour leader Rodrigue Kwizera, Teman Crippa & Birhanu Balew. All the other top Italians are also racing including Nadia Battocletti, Anna Arnaudo, Federica del Buono, Iliass Aouani & Yohanes Chiapanelli
        All the details and links at https://www.dropbox.com/s/ex0noyexu5...01-06.odt?dl=0

        Next major post tomorrow (Friday) evening for the weekend's streams including the Cross Internacional Juan Muguerza (Gold meeting) and 2 British indoor meetings - the BMC Sheffield meeting & the meeting at Lee Valley.​

        Comment


      • It turns out that there are no good streaming events on Saturday (there is an indoor meeting in Amsterdam but the fields are poor quality) so the next major post will now be tomorrow (Saturday) evening for Sunday's events.

        Comment


        • Live streams/broadcasts for Sunday 8th January:

          Sunday
          • BFTTA Lee Valley Indoor Open Meet 2 (London, GBR) - Overall, not stellar fields for this but there are some strong athletes dotted around the events, e.g., Mia McIntish & Alisha Rees in the 60m, Edoburun (60), Richard Akinyebo & Krishawn Aiken (both in the 60 & 200) and Ben Snaith in the 300
          • Egmond Half Marathon (Egmond aan Zee, NED) - An early kilometre or two of this race takes place on the beach so don't expect fast times (it was also extremely windy the last time I watched it); Heading the Women's field is Dutch marathon NR-holder Nienke Brinkmann and there's other good Dutchwomen in Jill Holterman & Bo Ummels. The Men's field includes Khalid Choukoud and the Belgian Bouchikhi brothers
          • Cross Internacional Juan Muguerza (Elgoibar, ESP) - World Cross Country Tour Gold meeting; There's a strong Women's field at this historic event that takes place on a good, challenging course (that becomes even more so if there's one of the Basque Country's torrential downpours). Margaret Kipkemboi will be hoping to turn the tables on Rahel Daniel (ERI) who beat her at Campaccio on Friday. However, they face tough competition in Niyonsaba, Winfred Yavi and watch out for 21yo Edinah Jebitok. She may be a 1500m specialist (4:02.6 PB) but she's a great cross country runner too, winning here last year. Also running are some of the best Spaniards (e.g. Sanchez-Escribano, Barreiro & Naima Ait Alibou) and there's England teams in both races, including Amelia Quirk, Poppy Tank & Steph Twell (English??) in the Women's. In the Men's race Birhanu Balew competes, fresh off just failing to win Campaccio in a photo-finish. He'll face Selemon Barega, some of the best Spaniards such as Mechaal, Mayo & Carro and an English contingent headed by Zakariya Mahamed
          • BMC Sheffield Indoors (Sheffield, GBR) - There's some good athletes competing here including a World Champion! With 800, 1500 and 3000m races on the programme, athletes racing include Boffey (800), Abigail Ives, Sinha & Mhlanga (1500), Jake Wightman, Sesemann, Seddon, Thomas Keen & John Travers (3000), Nuttall, Walcott-Nolan, Hartigan, Saskia Millard & Alice Bates (3000)
          All the details and links at https://www.dropbox.com/s/echkkxz3rc...01-08.odt?dl=0

          Next major post on Friday evening for a slightly busier weekend that includes the Cinque Mulini XC, the Houston Marathon & Half Marathon, the All Japan Inter-Prefectural Women's Ekiden, and 3 good road & cross country events in Spain.​

          • Live streams/broadcasts for Saturday 14th January to Sunday 15th January:

            It's a (mini) blockbuster of a weekend with a load of great outdoor action.

            Saturday to Sunday
            • Indoor National Meeting (Ancona, ITA) - There's several of these Ancona meetings coming up in the next 2 weeks. The fields for this one aren't brilliant but there's a smattering of international level athletes competing including Larissa Iapachino (60), Yassin Bouih (1500), Dario Dester (60H) and Veronica Besana, heptathlete Sveva Gerevini & TJ'er Ottavia Cestonaro (all 60H)
            Saturday
            • Málaga Indoor Match (Antequera, ESP) - This is a new addition to the calendar and the fields for the track events are pretty good domestically with a good number of international level athletes. Those competing include Bernat Erta & Manuel Guijarro (400), Pablo Sanchez Valledares & Mohamed Attaoui (800), Enrique Llopis (60H), Maria Isabel Perez (60), Paula Garcia (200), Laura Bueno (400), Teresa Errandonea (60H), Jennifer Rodriguez (COL; HJ) & Irati Mitxelena (LJ)
            • Carrera Urbana Internacional Noche de San Antón (Jaén, ESP) - International 10km road race; There's good fields for this race with Edris, Katir, Gebrhiwet & Ndikumwenayo in the Men's and Ruth Chepngetich and Lemlem Hailu in the Women's. The domestic contingent on the Men's side is particularly strong
            • Australian World Cross Country Championships Selection Trials (Stromlo Forest, Canberra, AUS) - The fields are really loaded here with pretty much all of the best Aussies obviously keen to compete in Bathurst next month. The short (2km) races are also loaded, especially on the Women's side, and will determine the team for the Mixed Relay; Will Battershill & Charlotte Purdue are also competing in the long races
            Saturday into Sunday
            • ? Mumbai Marathon (Mumbai, IND) - WA Gold Label race; There's good fields here with 10 sub-2:07 Men including Ayele Abshero & Philemon Rono and 9 sub-2:25 Women headed by Dera Dida, Sharon Cherop & Rahma Tusa
            Sunday
            • ? Okukuma Road Race (Kumamoto, JPN) - Half Marathon; The domestic entry for this is very good and includes a lot of Men in the 60-62 minute range; Mao Ichiyama will be the favourite to retain the Women's title
            • All Japan Inter-Prefectural Women's Ekiden Championship AKA The Empress' Cup (Kyoto, JPN) - Always a strong race with 47 teams competing - one for each of Japan's prefectures; The teams are a mix of senior pros, university athletes, high school (16 to 18yo) and Junior high school (13 to 15yo). Amongst the pros competing are Nozomi Tanaka, Kaede Hagitani, Mizuki Matsuda, Nanaka Yonezawa (Steepler), Rika Kaseda, Mao Uesugi, Wakana Itsuki and also high schooler Miku Muraoka who ran a terrific last leg at Christmas Day's National HS Ekiden. Super-fast but recently injured 19yo Seira Fuwa (bib 10) is also due to run the last leg
            • 10k Valencia (Valencia, ESP) - WA Label race; All 14 WA Platinum Label road races are marathons but if ever a 10k was worthy of that label, this event is it! Just some of the athletes competing are Jacob Krop, Richard Yator, Paul Chelimo, Dominic Lobalu, Weldon Lagat, Gressier & Amdouni and on the Women's side 29:14 WR-holder Yehualaw, Vicoty Chepngeno, Sarah Chelangat, Alemaz Samuel, Alina Reh & Sarah Lahti ... I better stop there because I could go on and on with naming names for both races! There's also a load of top Brits competing. The course is very fast - it's where Rhonex Kipruto set the current WR of 26:24
            • Cross Internacional Ciudad de Valladolid (Valladolid, ESP) - This is always a nice event with pretty good fields. The Men's race should be led by the likes of Yahya Aouina, David Bascuñana, Sergio Jimenez, Javi Guerra and a good Portuguese quartet including Rui Pinto. The leading entrants in a good Women's race are Laura Luengo, Lidia Campo, Laura Priego, Sara Ribeiro (POR), Nuria Lugueros & Carmen Viciosa. An intriguing entrant is Argentina's Fedra Luna - silver medalist in the 5000 at the Ibero-American Championships with 4:11 & 15:41 PBs. I haven't seen Fedra racing XC before but her compatriot Maria Luz Tesuri raced very well at some of the early season World Tour events and so I expect Fedra to be strong here
            • Houston Marathon & Half Marathon (Houston, TX, USA) - WA Gold Label races; There's interesting fields here. The Women's Half Marathon features the return of Tirunesh Dibaba in her first race for 4 years (after having 2 babies), Emily Sisson attacking her NR 67:11, Dom Scott & Jess Warner-Judd. The field for the Men's HM includes Leul Gebresilase, Shura Kitata, Ben Connor & Conner Mantz attacking Ryan Hall's NR 59:43. It's reportedly going to be quite breezy though so whether those record attempts come off is in doubt. Hitomi Niiya & Lewetegn Sintatehu head a not-very-deep Women's Marathon but the Men's race is stronger with 7 men at 2:08 or better as well as the likes of CJ Albertson, James Ngandu & Teshome Mekonen (now USA) who has a 60:02 half PB and should be able to smash his 2:13 marathon PB
            • Cinque Mulini (San Vittore Olona, ITA) - World Cross Country Tour Gold meeting; The fields for this famous event are not as strong as past years. Yeman Crippa heads the Men's field, hoping for a first Italian victory here since 1986. His main competition may be from Gideon Rono (Japanese-based 19yo with a 27:11 10,000 PB). The Women's race features Beatrice Chebet, Tour leader Lucy Mawia, Likina Amebaw & Elena Burkard. Giovanna Selva is probably the top Italian entrant
            All the details and links at https://www.dropbox.com/s/dql3yz8nhg...01-15.odt?dl=0

            Next major post possibly on Tuesday evening. If not, definitely on Friday 20th.​

            Comment


          • There are now on-demand YouTube TV broadcast recordings linked in the latest document above for Cinque Mulini and for the All Japan Inter-Prefectural Women's Ekiden Championship.

            • Live streams/broadcasts for Saturday 21st January to Monday 23rd January:

              OK, it gets very busy for the next 5 weeks what with the ramping up of the indoor season and also the summer season Down Under. I'll be making multiple posts each week because, by my reckoning, we should have live athletics streams on at least 31 of the next 37 days!

              Having said that, the first 2 meetings of the World Indoor Tour (both tomorrow) are not listed below. The live stream for the American Track League meeting in Iowa is subscription or pay-per-view only and for the Jablonec meeting (CZE) I've seen mention of it being on a local TV channel but cannot find TV listings for it, so I don't know whether it's being shown live or whether they'll just show a short highlights package afterwards. However, we do have a nice little World Tour meeting in Luxembourg on Sunday and the Silver meeting in Astana, Kazakhstan on Monday.

              During the week I will also post regarding how you can watch the Indoor Tour Gold meetings (now that a subscription streaming service has the rights in the UK) - the first one is Karlsruhe on Friday 27th - and also the next month of Indoor Tour meetings in France of which there's quite a lot of strong meetings. This post will possibly be a new thread.

              Saturday
              • Potts Classic incl NZL U20 3000m Championships (Hastings, NZL) - WA Contintental Tour Challenger meeting; There's a good number of top domestic athletes turning out at this curtain raiser for the 2023 Continental Tour. Amongst the contests there's a competitive Women's 800 with four sub-2:04 athletes, including Angie Petty & Holly Manning. The Women's Pole Vault sees McTaggart, Ayris & Eliza McCartney face-off. 1:45.3 athlete James Preston heads the Men's 800 and Jade Lally & Taryn Gollshewsky (AUS) are in the Discus; The Athletics NZ preview article linked in the document does a good job as always
              • European DNA Clubs U20/U18/U16 Indoor Meeting (Valencia, ESP) - Some of Spain's best clubs are competing in this Dynamic New Athletics match, including Playas de Castellon, Nerja & Scorpio71
              • ? Buriram Marathon Night Run (Buri Ram, THA) - WA Elite Label race; No idea who's competing here but I'm pretty sure there'll be a decent contingent of East Africans
              • European DNA Clubs Senior Indoor Meeting (Valencia, ESP) - There's some good athletes competing here such as Lucas Bua, Inaki Canal, Carlos Tobalina & Jennifer Rodriguez (COL; HJ) and the strong clubs from the junior match are augmented by FC Barcelona
              • International Indoor Meeting (Chemnitz, GER) - Sprints & Jumps meeting; Whilst the fields aren't the deepest there's some good athletes competing here, including Max Heß, Holzdepe & Blech in the PV and Roleder & Zapalska in the 60H. The Women's 400 (with 300m heats) is pretty good with Corinna Schwab, Irini Vasiliou (GRE), Luna Thiel & Mona Mayer
              • Memorial Alessio Giovannini International Indoor Meeting (Ancona, ITA) - There's some good domestic fields here. The Men's 800 is pretty good with Riccobon and, all moving down in distance, Bussotti Neves, Federico Riva & Bouih. The Women's 3000 includes Joyce Mattagliano stepping up in distance, Giulia Aprile and two young athletes who've been making good strides lately - Elisa Palmero & Valentina Gemetto (the latter has had a big breakthrough in cross country this winter). The Women's 60 includes Siragusa, Herrera Abreu, Melon & Maya Bruney
              • Kuldiga Catherina's Cup AKA Kuldīgas Katrīnas kauss (Kuldīgā, LAT) - EAP indoor meeting; This is always a nice little meeting, well-covered on the stream and this year it features contingents from Britain, the rest of the Baltics, Belgium, Hungary & Italy. Amongst the Brits, Daniel Putman goes in the 400, Jess Tappin is in the 60H and also in the 400 with Susanna Banjo & Poppy Malik (800m specialist Vanessa Scaunet (BEL) also races that)
              • USA Cross Country Championships (Richmond, VA, USA) - There's a strong US Army squad in the Men's race who'll face the likes of Maggard, Hillary & Emmanuel Bor, Buchanan & Erassa. The Women's race includes Kelati, the un-retired Stephanie Bruce, Durgin, Buchalski, Kurgat, Thweatt & Morley
              Sunday
              • Kitakyushu Invitational Women's Ekiden AKA Senbatsu Ladies Ekiden (Kitakyushu, JPN) - This good race matches senior pro and university teams running 5 legs totalling 27km with High School teams running the same distance but over 6 legs instead (the 10.4km fifth leg for seniors is split into two legs of 5.9km & 4.5km for the High Schoolers). There's a lot of strong athletes on the squads here. The Panasonic team will be strong if the likes of Kaori Morita, Sakiko Naito & Nanami Watanabe are included on the starting team. Eva Cherono is in the TOTO squad. The High School teams are always pretty loaded with talent since this is a big, big race for them - a chance to pit themselves against pro teams
              • All Japan Inter-Prefectural Men's Ekiden Championship AKA Emperor's Cup (Hiroshima, JPN) - Like last weekend's Women's equivalent there's 47 teams competing here, one for each of Japan's prefectures and in the same way as the Women's, it mixes senior pro & university athletes with High School & Junior High School (Middle School) athletes. On the pro side there are no massive names competing but the depth, as always, is impressive - there's 11 athletes starting who ran sub-28 for 10,000 in 2022 and 47 of them ran sub-28:30 last year. U20 5000m NR-holder Keita Sato (13:22.9 PB) is running Leg 3
              • Vila de Santa Pola International Half Marathon (Santa Pola, ESP) - WA Label race; This race has a burgeoning reputation - it's where Jess Piasecki ran her 67:20 PB last year. Samantha Harrison (68:12 PB) will hope to run a similar time this year after her 30:51 in the Valencia 10k last weekend. She'll face Beatrice Cheserek (66:48 winner in Cardiff last October), Aminet Ahmed (ETH) & promising youngster Nancy Jepleting. The Men's race features a cast of 59-60 minute East Africans headed by Alfred Kipchirchir (59:43 PB)
              • South American Cross Country Championships (Poços de Caldas, BRA) - There's athletes from 6 countries competing here. I must admit there's no names jumping out at me except Venezuela's sisters Joselyn and Edymar Daniely Brea who are both down to run the long race and the Mixed Relay. Joselyn ran a NR 32:05 at the Valencia 10k last weekend
              • CMCM Indoor Meeting (Kirchberg, LUX) - World Indoor Tour Bronze meeting; I like the look of this meeting. There's very international fields with a decent number of very good athletes competing and some of the fields are quite deep, especially on the Women's side, such as the W 60, 60H & 800 and the Men's Shot Put
              • CrossCup de Hannut (Hannut, BEL) - World Cross Country Tour Gold meeting; There's good fields here. The Women's field is headed by Rahel Daniel (ERI; going for a 3rd World Tour win in 16 days), Pamela Kosgei (winner in Cardiff), Likina Amebaw (ETH), Elena Burkard & Sarah Lahti. The Men's field is led by 19yo Cinque Mulini winner Gideon Rono, 2021 World U20 bronze medalist Levy Kibet, Isaac Kimeli, Yann Schrub & Younes Kniya (MAR). There's also a total of 11 Brits due to compete in these races, such as Megan Keith, Amelia Quirk, Alexandra Millard, Mahamed Mahamed & Jack Gray. I'm pleased to see Brits competing more in these Belgian races again because for the last half of the 2010's it seemed like they'd gone out of fashion for Brits. There's also a load in the U20 races, including Innes Fitzgerald, and these 2 races are also due to be shown on the live stream
              • Mediterranean U23 Indoor Championships (Valencia, ESP) - This is a nice compact event with straight finals for all the events except the 60m & 60H. There's some solid fields and also a number of very good athletes entered including Larissa Iapichino, Karydi Spyridoula, Lorenzo Benati & Mohamed Attaoui (3:39 1500 PB)
              Monday
              • Astana Meeting (Astana, KAZ) - World Indoor Tour Silver meeting; There's no entry/start lists out yet but from the teasers on Facebook it looks like there'll be plenty of plenty of internationals (Brazil, Cuba, USA etc) competing against the best Kazakhs, including Mike Rodgers, Roger Iribarne and in the Women's High Jump, Sadullayeva & Dubovitskaya
              All the details and links at https://www.dropbox.com/s/udsaj4ia9e...01-23.odt?dl=0

              Next major post on Monday evening for Tuesday's Vic Milers Club Meet 3 in Oz and hopefully (if sufficient info is available) also for 4 indoor meetings on Wednesday.​

                thanks , thats it sorted now

            • Just to let you know, there is now on-demand streams/broadcasts linked in the latest document above for:
              • Kuldiga Catherina's Cup (Latvia)
              • USA Cross Country Championships
              • All Japan Inter-Prefectural Men's Ekiden Championship AKA Emperor's Cup
              • CrossCup de Hannut (VPN needed)
              There is some good news re live streaming ... European Athletics's YouTube channel will have live streams with English commentary for 9 of this season's World Indoor Tour meetings - today's Luxembourg meeting was the first - including 3 of the French meetings (all Silver) which, until EA stepped in, you would have had to pay 5 Euros for the month to watch.

                Also now linked in the latest document above is a TV broadcast recording on YouTube of the Kitakyushu Invitational Women's Ekiden AKA Senbatsu Ladies Ekiden.

            • Live streams/broadcasts for Tuesday 24th January to Wednesday 25th January:

              At least 3 of Wednesday's 4 meetings clash (Cottbus meeting time TBC) but they'll all be available to watch on-demand afterwards.

              Tuesday
              • Victorian Milers Club Meet 3 (Box Hill, VIC, AUS) - 800m & 1500m; Decent fields here, with the highlights the 1500 'A' races including Clarke, Lunn, Mathas (NZL), Myers & Clifford in the Men's and Caldwell, Hansen & Hancock-Cameron in the Women's
              Wednesday
              • Memoriál Josefa Sečkáře Indoor (Brno, CZE) - International High Jump meeting; No word yet on the fields but the Men's is set to include Douwe Amels (NED; 2.28 PB) & Erik Portillo (MEX; 2.24 PB)
              • Meeting Internacional Ciudad de Valencia (Valencia, ESP) - World Indoor Tour Challenger meeting; Much of this meeting has decent but mostly domestic fields. However, the Men's 1500 & 3000 and the Women's 800, 1500 & 3000 are all quite good. For example, the M 1500 includes Ndikuwemenayo, Adrian Ben, Mohamed Attaoui & Javier Miron (1:44.8 at 800) and the Women's 3000 Machado (POR), Solange Pereira, Agueda Marques & Mechaal (TUR). The Men's Triple Jump is also good with Zango, Compaore, Evora & Copello
              • Aarhus SPRINT'n'JUMP (Århus, DEN) - World Indoor Tour Bronze meeting; The quality of the events varies here but there's a lot of good athletes involved. In general, the sprints look deeper than the jumps. For example, the Women's 60 Hurdles includes Lavin, Graversgaard, Heltbech, good Indian Jyothi Yarraji, Barrett & McIntosh, and the Men's 60 includes Nazarov, Musah (DEN), Adam Thomas, Samuelsson & Erewa (GER)
              • Internationales Springer-Meeting Cottbus (Cottbus, GER) - Women's HJ & Men's PV; World Indoor Tour Bronze meeting; This is the big meeting of the day with really good fields that include Mahuchikh, Vukovic, Gerashchenko & Lake in the HJ and Kendricks, Obiena, Lisek, Broeders & Ludwig in the PV
              All the details and links at https://www.dropbox.com/s/qie2nmc6lj...01-25.odt?dl=0

              Next major post on Thursday evening for Friday's Gold indoor meeting in Karlsruhe, the LILAC Grand Prix (Silver) meeting in the US and the start of the Australian Capital Territory outdoor Championships.​

                It turns out that the red athletes on the Valencia entry lists were NOT withdrawals. So, for example, Calli Thackery does go in the 3000.

            • Live streams/broadcasts for Friday 27th January:

              In case you missed the news that's relevant to UK residents ... The streaming situation has now changed for all the Indoor Tour & Continental Tour Gold meetings. There's more info on that in the document listing for the Karlsruhe meeting, including a link to my recent thread explaining your best option if you want to watch these Gold meetings.

              Further to what I said in my last post, the LILAC Grand Prix (Silver) meeting in the US actually starts at 2am UK time on Saturday so, instead, that will be part of tomorrow's post for all the weekend's streams.

              Friday to Sunday
              • Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Open & U20 Championships (Canberra, ACT, AUS) - Traditionally these championships have attracted many good athletes from "out of state" as well as a few from other nations and this year is no different, meaning that there's some pretty strong domestic fields lining up and a number of Australia's absolute best athletes are competing
              Friday
              • Indoor Meeting (Karlsruhe, GER) - World Indoor Tour Gold meeting; As usual with the Gold meetings, there's no need to tease this up!

                UPDATE - The Gold indoor & outdoor meetings will also be broadcast on Sky ch 422 and Virgin ch 553.

            • Live streams/broadcasts for Saturday 28th January to Sunday 29th February:

              Wow, this weekend's streaming has it all ... Indoor meetings (tons of them!), a Combined Events meeting, outdoor meetings Down Under, cross country, road racing and Ekidens. All that's missing is some Race Walking!

              Although the French meeting streams aren't free to watch - instead they're on a very affordable streaming service (approx £4.39 for one month) - I will still list them here in case anyone has signed up for that service. And if they haven't, I think some people still like to see startlists.
              For how to sign up to that service, see my post at https://forum.athleticsweekly.com/fo...3062#post53062

              I'm off out tonight so apologies, I haven't had time to write teaser notes, except for one event for which I already had notes prepared. It's a shame because it's a very good weekend with a lot of interesting athletes in action. However, nearly all the events detailed have entry/startlists linked in the document and many of them also have good Preview articles linked.

              In a classic case of a WA meeting designation not reflecting the quality of the meeting, the Challenger meeting in Sabadell looks very good if most of the entrants turn up.

              Friday to Sunday
              • Ongoing Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Open & U20 Championships (Canberra, ACT, AUS) - Included in the document again for convenience; See teaser notes in the post above

              late Saturday into Sunday
              • Kagoshima Prefectural Women's Ekiden (Kirishima, JPN) - This ekiden of 12 municipality teams is for seniors, High School (16-18yo) and Junior High School athletes (13-15yo) with the majority of competitors being 18yo or under. There's no restrictions on who can run what leg, other than the Junior High Schoolers can only run on any of the three 3km legs and the 3rd leg is exclusively for Junior High Schoolers. Despite the small number of teams it's a pretty good quality race at the front, usually without having any real superstars (although a decent number are close to, or within, the lower reaches of national class). The winning time is usually in the 69 to 70 minute range for the half marathon race distance (remember, most of the athletes are teenagers) and often it's quite a close race for the first 2 or 3 positions. For example, on the last leg in 2022 the Toshiba athlete on the Aira City team completely wiped out a 43 second deficit to Izumi City to take the victory for her team; At the end of the race they do almost 2 full laps of the small 200m track, crossing the Start/Finish line twice
              • Okumusashi Ekiden (Hanno, JPN) - Men's & High School Boys Ekiden; At 'just' 38.8km this is unusually short for a male Ekiden involving seniors

                • Box Hill Burn (Box Hill, VIC, AUS) - 1000m & 5000m; This year's fields don't have the strength of previous editions (perhaps due to the World XC Champs?) Having said that the Men's 5000 'A' race isn't bad and the Women's 1000 'A' race includes Abbey Caldwell & Sarah Billings
                • Supernova # 2 - Canberra Open 10,000m Walk (Canberra, AUS) - World Race Walking Tour Silver meeting; Very nice fields here including Olympic & World medalists, a European champion and a Commonwealth Games champion.

                • Mondo Classic (Uppsala, SWE) - World Indoor Tour Challenger meeting; International Men's Pole Vault meeting; Another meeting belying its Challenger status. Many of Mondo's mates are turning out to compete against him - Kendricks, Lightfoot, Obiena & Braz amongst them

                • Erfurt Indoor (Erfurt, GER) - World Indoor Tour Challenger meeting; There's a few decent fields here but some of the events are mostly domestic. Mills & Learmonth go in the 800 against Marc Reuther and Patryk Sieradzki
                • Meeting Miramas Métropole (Miramas, FRA) - World Indoor Tour Bronze meeting; The line-ups for some of the track events are quite good.

                  The Swedish meet was gb’ed - Norwegian one wasn’t, so you’ll be able to catch up for a while.

                  Added to the bottom of the document above is the Sola Power Throws meet in New Zealand, a WA Contintental Tour Challenger meeting. The live stream starts at 8.45pm Friday. TBH, the fields aren't particularly deep but Jacko Gill is in the SP.
                  Angelina Topic headlines the fields at the Kallithea High Jump meeting starting at 3pm and the start time for the Erfurt Indoor stream is confirmed as 4.15pm.

              • Lucky, it can't be said often enough how grateful we (if I might be forgiven for presuming to speak on behalf of my fellow posters and lurkers) are for all this information you provide. It must be quite a job and obviously not something you can throw together in a few minutes. Many thanks for your efforts - they are appreciated.
