2019 RunBlogRun Podcast: Why we love the Birmingham Diamond League, a Preview


The Birmingham Diamond League will be held on August 18, 2019 at the Alexander Stadium in Birmingham, England. I love this meet, and I love this city. Birmingham has the best curry in country, and I always meet new friends. Ian Stewart, then Meet Director of said event, brought me there in 2005 and I was hooked. Spencer Barden, now elite Meet director, keeps the excitement alive and growing. Orchestrating fine fields, capturing the attention of the fans, and keeping BBC happy, are all done.

Sixty WC medalists will be in Birmingham this weekend! Watch for pieces by Stuart Weir, audio by Andy Edwards and remote live updates by RunBlogRun to enhance your viewing pleasure (NBCN, Eurosport, BBC).

Correction: The Stadium in Birmingham is Alexander Stadium, my apologies to the City of Birmingham. Thanks to Mike Deering, The Shoe Addicts for expediting this podcast. Stuart Weir gently reminded me that it is not Prince Alexander Stadium, but Alexander Stadium. Sorry about that!
