GLASGOW (GBR): Laura Muir will not compete on home soil at the Muller Indoor Grand Prix in Glasgow on 25 February in order to focus on the World Indoor Championships. “With date change of the UK Champs and the World Indoors on the same week, it would have meant three competitions in 15 days which is a bit much,” she said on Twitter. Muir will compete in the 3000m at the British Indoor Championships in Birmingham on 17 February though.
RunBlogRun opines: Well, not much forethought went into planning of British Trials and Muller Indoor GP Glasgow. Laura Muir, who loves Glasgow Meeting, had to cancel in order to run UK Champs, which had changed date.
