LA CLASSIQUE D'ATHLÉTISME DE MONTRÉAL SUPPORTS THE #STANDFORUKRAINE CAMPAIGN
For the first time ever since its inaugural edition, La Classique d'athlétisme de Montréal will put tickets on sale for track and field fans wishing to attend the meet next June 5. In these critical times for the ukrainian population, La Classique will give 50% of its tickets sales for support to the Ukrainian Canadian Congress through the St. Sophie Orthodox Church of Montreal.
Let's not forget how fortunate we are to be able to have athletes show us their abilities and display performances for our pleasure. You can purchase as many tickets as you need by clicking on the TICKETS button on this page.
Spectators who wish to attend without buying tickets on line will have to pay 20$ cash at the gate.
Thanks to the constant support and commitment of our partners, we have secured a great date on the calendar of the Athletics Canada National track & field Tour and a sanction from the North American, Central American and Caribbean Athletic Association (NACAC). Montréal will be the 4th stop in the ten competition series of the Tour and hopes to host more than 300 athletes vying for national championships standards and World Athletics championships standards. A lot of work ahead of us towards another success for this 3rd official edition.
