    We have been enjoying 106-109 temps here in the Indian Territory this week and, I confess, I stay inside in A/C comfort, venturing out in the balmy 94 degree dusk for a quick bike tour of the "hood"

    Well, it looks like our national championships will for once take place in perfect conditions - at least for sprints and field events. 30 degrees and no rain is the forecast for each of the 3 days of competition.
    Vanuatu has a three day T&F championship?? Total population is around 200,000. How many T&F athletes in that group??

    Wow. With those numbers, I'm not at all surprised that some people had serious (or fatal) trouble...

    Most of the time whenever a significant T&F event is taking place in Poland you can safely bet it will be cold and rainy ;-)

    Tragic but it has been that warm here for days and the humidity is worse. Just means that I run a bit earlier in the morning. And that is only because my running partners are insisting. I couldn't care less.

    started a topic European Heatwave

    European Heatwave

    I'm not really sure if this is a T&F topic or not. I guess the mods will move or nuke it as necessary.

    From an article here on the BBC news website:
    Europe's heatwave claims victims
    ...
    In the Netherlands, an annual walking event in the city of Nijmegen had to be called off at the half-way stage after two walkers died of heatstroke.
    ...
    Does anybody know if this was an actual race walking event, or something non-competitive?
Working...
