Coverage of the European Championships : the men’s and women’s 50k events in Berlin start at 7:35 am our time on Tuesday, with an impressive field in the women’s event. BBC2 is on air from 8:30, but no details yet about what events they will be covering. The 20k events, with Tom, Callum, Bethan and Heather competing, are on Saturday morning, with the women starting at 8:05 our time and the men at 9:55. BBC2 is on air from 9 am. The BBC’s online service looks like it may well provide coverage of all walk events, but we’ll have to see. Other coverage may also be available.
