The Gold Coast Commonwealth Games' middle and long distance events time-table



The Gold Coast Commonwealth Games are approaching so fast. As a long distance runner and a fan of athletics in general, I can’t wait to watch the action live. I will probably be turning these days, from Sunday to Sunday as a week of relatively easy running as I do much of updates and previews throughout the week. I enjoy all running events, but I do believe I have more insights into distances from the 800m track events to the marathon. Look out for some of my stories on RunBlogRun
Every day, from the 8th to the 15th there will be at least one interesting final to be enjoyed by any middle/long distance athletics fan. Below is a simplified time-table of what to expect each day in the local Gold Coast times and Kenyan times in brackets.
