BRITISH ATHLETICS CONFIRM CANCELLATION OF MÜLLER GRAND PRIX GATESHEAD
British Athletics can confirm the cancellation of the Müller Grand Prix Gateshead, which was originally rescheduled for 12 September.
Joint statement from Gateshead Council and British Athletics:
“It is with sad news that we announce that the proposed Müller Grand Prix Gateshead due to take place this September, has now been officially cancelled.
“The government measures brought in earlier this year due to COVID-19 have ultimately prevented the progress of the much-needed upgrade of the facilities at the Gateshead International Stadium. Time has ultimately defeated us to ensure that International athletes can not only compete in a safe manner but can also compete to their full potential using world class facilities.
“We will continue to work together to achieve our ambition of returning International Athletics back to Gateshead next year.”
