A guide to this weekend’s action in Glasgow, including ones to watch, a timetable, TV info and live stream
A week after hosting the Müller Indoor Grand Prix, Glasgow’s Emirates Arena stages the SPAR British Athletics Indoor Championships for the first time (February 22-23).
There might now be no major championships to qualify for after the postponement until next year of the World Indoors in China due to the coronavirus outbreak but there are still prestigious national titles at stake and world ranking points up for grabs.
Our three-page preview to the action can be found in the latest edition of AW magazine, which is available digitally here or to order in print here, with that issue also including a look ahead to English, Scottish and Welsh cross-country championships and more.
Here we highlight some of the stars set to compete in Glasgow and how you can follow the action.
