The Jerome Classic is Canada’s stage for track and field. The home of where racing legends find flight, this annual event in June has hosted Olympic athletes such as Damien Warner, Andre de Grasse, Melissa Bishop, Evan Dunfee and others. Inspired by Olympian Harry Jerome, the Jerome Classic is where speed reigns and strength launches athletes into motion.


The Jerome Classic is Canada’s best track and field event, first held in 1964, titled as the ‘The International Olympic Preview’, and held annually since 1984. As a true track and field Classic, events include track sprints, hurdles, middle distances, jumps and throws. In addition, the event hosts a Special Olympics 100m and Youth Relays.

Who to Watch

Sunday features Discus and Hammer Throw. This year’s field is so strong, the event had to be held at McLeod Athletic Park to accommodate the distance these world-class athletes will throw.
