This is a world class event and one which made me realise that when running is done the right way, I love spectating as much as I do running. It is more engaging as any football match or grand prix - you get right up close to the action as athletes duke it out over several 25lap races and finish amidst pyrotechnics. On top of the normal #Lane3BeerNCheer, circus entertainment,‘lactic tunnels of love’, a home straight pedestrian bridge, infield spectating, live music, back straight DJ and a Legends Seminar this year they have added Wave Light Technology and gong-man! The Wave light is a light that goes round the edge of the track showing where athletes should be to hit a certain pace (e.g Olympic qualifying). So, as a spectator you know whether they are on track (!) to get the time or not without constantly having to look at your watch and do the maths. Also, if you’re not a running geek and have no idea what a good time is, you can easily have an idea of how the race is going. If that wasn’t enough they’ll have a man dressed in a gold suit banging a huge drum when they hit the final lap (and the normal little bell too).

If you can’t get there you can watch it online:

UK : runjumpthrow.com & final two race will be broadcast on the BBC here
US or Canada: runnerspace.com.

Here’s a taste of last year:

Women’s races take place at 16:30, 19:15 and 20:45 but to be honest you should just watch the lot. The men’s races are going to be storming too.

You can read a preview here at FastRunning.com
Full lineup inc men’s starts and interschools relay can be found here. Women’s lineups below.

Helen Clitheroe is in charge of the team for GB and she has a great squad. Amongst others we’ve got…

Charlotte Arter: British 10,000m champion and parkrun record holder

Steph Twell: Winner of the vitality 10k who embodies sheer grit and determination who ran a casual 2:30 marathon debut

Alice Wright: Part of the HOKA NAZ Elite team, Wright trains under Ben Rosario over in the US. She came 6th representing GB at the European Athletics Champs, Berlin 2018. She ran 1:11:37 for 3rd place at the Rock’n’Roll San Diego Half Marathon earlier this year

Aly Dxon: Olympic marathoner who is about to make the switch to 50k but is mixing it up with a shorter race and is on fine form at the moment

Sarah Inglis: Scottish born and back representing GB after a 9 year break and a move to Vancouver and a re-invigoration of her running career

Mhairi McLennan: Also brings Scottish talent to the mix, she ran a great race at the World Cross Country Champs earlier this year placing 32nd and 8th European. It’s her first track race of the year

Eilish McColgan: Two time Olympian and another speedy Scot! She has run the third fastest 5000m time in British history this summer (14:47:94)

Verity Ockenden: Athlete and poet from Swansea, Ockenden was 3rd in the Vitality 10k and 4th in the Westminster mile this year. She was frustrated with her most recent race and is looking to go all-in this time

There are other GB ladies running but those are the official team members. An honorable mention to Hayley Carruters, accidental London Marathon viral sensation whose crawl over the line overshadowed her hard work and amazing result (18th for her 3rd marathon ever when she started running only just over a year before). She’s making her 10k track debut. Exciting as this girl doesn’t do thing by halves.

Women’s A Race @ 20:45 BST including the European 10,000m Cup
