RunBlogRun opines: I was able to watch the Gyulai Meeting live from my hotel room in Europe last summer. Much better coverage than most U.S. meets. Blew my mind. Some great competitions and a loud crowd. Gyulai Memorial, named in honor of late IAAF VP Istvan Gyulai, is one of the more creative meets on the EA Challenge circuit. It is on the RunBlogRun bucket list.
