That website seems to have schedules for everything except the athletics. In fact, I can't see that there is any - the European Athletics championships are in Berlin in a few weeks time.

Championsips?

They might have a park run or something.

Glasgow and Berlin will co-host the inaugural European Championships in August 2018,

dreams99 - 02 Aug 2018 09:18:27 (#6 of 328)

ah, so Berlin is part of this.

Electro2 - 02 Aug 2018 09:23:19 (#7 of 328)

Yep

TRaney - 02 Aug 2018 09:29:50 (#8 of 328)

The hidden hand of Berlin is everywhere.

Hope they weren't planning on having the rowing at Strathclyde park.

Electro2 - 02 Aug 2018 09:50:15 (#10 of 328)

Oh yes they are!

Some athletics results already.

We have a decathlete, Tim Duckworth, who started well, 2nd in the 100m. Also 2nd in the LJ, which put him in the lead overall, then a poor shot putt out him down to 4th.

dreams99 - 07 Aug 2018 15:08:05 (#15 of 328)

Duckworth is good at HJ, joint best SB in the field.

dreams99 - 07 Aug 2018 17:55:51 (#16 of 328)

There's a Dutch decathlete called Sintnicolaas.

TRaney - 07 Aug 2018 18:08:28 (#17 of 328)

Is this a real integrated event or just a bunch of euros held at the same time to boost interest?

dreams99 - 07 Aug 2018 19:27:55 (#18 of 328)

6 events in Glasgow, tacked on to euros in berlin which is a regular scheduled event.

dreams99 - 07 Aug 2018 19:29:28 (#19 of 328)

Alex Yee running now, local boy, member if club I've just got back from training at. Most of the club are at a venue in catford watching it.

Tim Duckworth in the lead after 4 events.

dreams99 - 07 Aug 2018 19:51:41 (#20 of 328)

Alex in contention until about 3 laps to go, but ended up staggering over the line - looks like his legs went in the heat.
