    Just what I was abut to post!!!!

    Just checked TV listings and its on tomorrow at 2m on BBC2. I think the racing is today. There is no short course this year. Mo Farah is running the long race or should that be the only mens race?

    I can't believe the races are not being shown live yet the corrupt world of cricket are having games shown today. Ban Cricket.

    According to www.iaaf.org the mens race is at 17.20 today. Not sure if thats UK time or Kenyan time. (Where is XCRunner when we need him?)

    It was originally scheduled to be live at 1:00pm today but this has been replaced by:

    I have no interest in watching two men battering each other into submission.

    Thanks for posting this, I can now go out for the rest of today!

    You suprise me RR ,i thought after your intro to cricket last year you may have become a fan ,but not so.
    But i do agree with you about coverage of the race .
    Mind you it brings up an interesting topic.
    If you were not in great condition and you knew you could not win a race but guarantee say a 10th place in a race would you give this info to a bookmaker for money?
    Bearing in mind that come race day you could come say 5th you woulld still have to come 10th to keep the deal with the bookie.

    It should be an option, but there are 'technical problems'.
    I'm watching on the internet.
    Dear me i actually agree with Brendan it looks awful out there, they're all collapsing at the finish.
    Can't believe those runners thought the finish was 1 lap before it was - you'd think they'd know the course at that level.
    Well done to the junior girls, awesome stuff.
    Junior men on now...

    Well, that shows how much I know.

    What a race!

    What happened to Bekele? Can't he count laps?
