Dec 18 2010 - Saint John to Host International Track Meet in 2012

Saint Johnto Host International Track Meet in 2012

 

In August of 2012 the Saint John Track Club will host its first international track championships in nearly 20 years. The North American, Central American and Caribbean World Masters Athletics (NCCWMA) recently completed a site visit and accepted the club’s bid for their championships to be held in Saint John on August 9-12th 2012. The event will take place at the newly redeveloped Canada Games Stadium. Following the city’s selection for this event, the Canadian Masters Athletics Association decided to award Saint John the 2012 Canadian Championships to be held in conjunction with the international meet. This dual Canadian and NCCWMA Championships will be among the largest track and field events held in the city since the Stadium originally opened in 1985.

 

The World Masters Athletics Association, parent body to the NCCWMA, is responsible for the development of track and field events for men and women ages 35 and older. Brian Keaveney, President of the Association for North America and past President for Canada was in Saint John in October to assess the stadium, tour the city and to finalize the arrangements with the club organizing committee.  He was very impressed with the city saying, “Saint John is a great championship city for our masters’ athletes and has a lot to offer as a tourism destination as well.” Mr. Keaveney also praised local track club and tourism officials for providing “the best site visit” he had ever experienced. 

 

Masters athletes compete in all track and field events from 100 m sprints to 10 km races, hurdles, jumps and throws. Organizers hope to attract more than 500 participants from across North & Central America along with other international participants who will use it as a stepping stone event leading up to the World Masters Championships the following year. Combining this with the Canadian Championships in 2012 will mean a large contingent of Canadian competitors and help ensure a first class masters competition.

 

These athletes come to compete but they also see these trips as a chance to take a vacation and see a new part of the world. This is an excellent sport tourism opportunity for the city of Saint John. “Saint John has an outstanding sporting tradition of hosting great events,” commented Mayor Ivan Court. “It will be a great pleasure to have these athletes in our city, enjoying all Saint John has to offer, especially our new stadium. It shows how investments in recreation facilities, like the Canada Games Stadium can really pay off for our community.”  

 

UNBSJ Vice President, Robert MacKinnon noted, “We are thrilled to have this event on the UNBSJ campus. We can offer an outstanding competition venue for these athletes plus the university setting and residences will be available providing an economic benefit to the campus. We are an international campus and hosting an international sporting event of this caliber is a natural fit.”

 

This event will further raise the profile of track and field in Saint John helping to develop volunteers and officials. “This event presents a unique sports opportunity for Saint John allowing us to strengthen our hosting skills and setting the stage for more events to come. These athletes demonstrate that sport can be something you can do for life setting a great example for our younger athletes”, said Bill MacMackin, President of the Saint John Track Club.

 

The track club is setting up an organizing committee which will be responsible for planning the event. Anyone interested volunteering can reach the Saint John Track Club through their web site at www.sjtc.ca
