Müller Grand Prix Gateshead
Gateshead International Stadium - Gateshead
Sunday 23rd May 2021
18:00 - 21:00
UK Athletics can confirm that it will host the Müller Grand Prix Gateshead on 23rd May at the Gateshead International Stadium.
Rabat, which was due to host the opening Diamond League fixture on the same date, was no longer able to hold the event, and UK Athletics made the offer to Diamond League who were looking for an alternate host. It means the fixture, which is an important marker in the road to Tokyo for many athletes internationally, is retained.
Bringing the event to the UK means that more British athletes will benefit from the fixture, such is the advantage of an additional home-based meet against top class opposition at a crucial point in the early season calendar.
