 Doping control at Road Running Championships

Athletics Canada coordinates, in collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES), in-competition doping control procedures during road racing Championships. The host is required to assist the CCES in preparing for and carrying out doping control procedures including the provision of a dedicated room for doping control. There is a CCES delegate on-site for all Athletics Canada Championships.
