The Johnny Loaring Classic track and field meet will bring elite athletes to Alumni Stadium on Saturday, May 21.
A stop on the Athletics Canada national tour, it is also newly designated a Challenger series event by World Athletics, the international governing body for track and field — which will confer more points for competitors in world rankings.
“The Johnny Loaring Classic’s elevation in status with World Athletics is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the local organizing committee, the support of local businesses, the ability of the knowledgeable local volunteer officials, and the support of track and field by the community of Windsor-Essex,” says meet director Brett Lumley, associate head coach of Lancer track and field. “We invite all to come out to see some of the very best in the sport compete in an action-packed program.”
