Athletics Canada announces hosts for upcoming Canadian Championships

The Township of Langley, B.C., Montreal, Ottawa, Saint John, N.B., Toronto and Winnipeg will all play host to an Athletics Canada Canadian Championship Series event in the upcoming hosting cycle.

Athletics Canada’s Competitions Committee made the hosting recommendations, which were then ratified at the Annual General Meeting held in Ottawa July 7-8.

A subsequent announcement will be made to announce hosts for the 2019-2020 and 2021-2022 Canadian Cross Country Championships, as well as the 2019-2020 Hershey Canadian Indoor Championships, and 2019-2022 Canadian 5km Road Race Championships.

2019 (World Trials) and 2020 (Olympic / Paralympic Trials) – Montreal

“These will be great moments for track and field in Canada and in Quebec and we are very much looking forward to getting to work and hold high-quality events,” says Claude Chagnon, chair of the Host Organizing Committee. “We want to deliver top quality championships both in terms of organization and sports.”

“The Township of Langley is thrilled to be hosting the Canadian Track and Field Championships with the Langley Mustangs Track and Field Club,” said Mayor Jack Froese. “Langley Township is known as a sports destination with a reputation for providing exceptional recreation facilities, accommodation, and support services. Our many enthusiastic volunteers and fans look forward to experiencing the excitement of these prestigious Championships and cheering on the athletes taking part locally and from across the nation.”

Hershey Canadian Indoor Championships
2021 and 2022 – Saint John, N.B.

"Saint John, N.B., is thrilled to be selected for the 2021 and 2022 Hershey Indoor Championships at our new field house scheduled to open in 2019. Our community will be proud to welcome athletes to our city and new facility. It is especially exciting to have this announcement, giving further evidence of the potential of the field house facility to attract new events to our region. Events that in the past would have to bypass Atlantic Canada can now come here having a positive economic impact on our region." Bill MacMackin, Chair of Host Organizing Committee.

Canadian 10km Road Race Championships
2019 to 2022 – Ottawa, held as part of Race Weekend

“We’re happy to have been awarded the Canadian 10K Championships for an additional four years. We know local running fans love to cheer on Canada’s top runners as they race through their city’s streets. And as Canada’s only 10K IAAF gold event, this is also great news for Canadian athletes looking to compete against the world’s best on a course lined up with Canada’s most enthusiastic spectators.”  John Halvorsen, President, Run Ottawa. 

Canadian Half Marathon Championships
2019 to 2022 – Winnipeg, held as part of the Manitoba Marathon

“The Manitoba Marathon is very excited to host Canada’s top athletes. This is a great opportunity for us to showcase our beautiful city and fast course. We are proud to partner with Athletics Canada in support of the high performance program, and we look forward to creating a great experience for runners of all abilities.” Rachel Munday, Executive Director, Manitoba Marathon.

Canadian Marathon Championships
2019 to 2022 – Toronto, held as part of Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

“We are thrilled to continue our hosting of the Athletics Canada Canadian Marathon Championships through to 2022. It has been a great experience to partner with an innovative and receptive national federation who value the endurance and road racing component of the sport. Together, I think we’ve been able to provide more opportunities, more incentives, more encouragement for Canadian distance runners to take on the marathon and compete at the highest international levels in this classic event. We hope that this renewed partnership, that will take us through Tokyo 2020, will also take marathoning to the next level in our country, in terms of both quality and depth.” Alan Brookes, Race Director, Canada Running Series.
