High Performance Events – National Permit Meeting
As part of the Athletics Canada “Athletics Canada Tokyo Qualifier Series” we are excited to offer a number of speed events. This is a great opportunity for our sprinters to run fast due to the great altitude in Calgary.
How Altitude Affects Sprinters And Performance? So if you’re a sprinter, you’re gonna love altitude because with altitude and as you go up, the atmospheric pressure decreases. This means less air resistance and with less air resistance, you run faster.
It is our pleasure to offer the following High Performance events for both men and women… sprint hurdles, 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, Discus (able body and para), Javelin (able body and para) and Shot Put (able body and para), long Jump (able body and para) and high jump. Acceptance into this “E Meet” will be determined by seed times and performances. If you enter for the “E Meet” and you are not accepted then your entry will be moved to the open meet in July. We will shut down the ability to register for an event once we have hit capacity for that event. Check back to this site on a regular basis for updates.
If for some reason either meet or both are cancelled you will receive a full refund. Here is your chance to run fast and run those standards you are chasing

Coaches are required to check-in at the main gate of the track where you will obtain your coach’s lanyard, ensure that your COVID screening has been completed and have your temperature checked. You will then be given access to the warm-up zone, and viewing stands at the track. The viewing area includes the main grandstand and the smaller stands at both the jumps and throws areas. High Jump coaches will be able to stand at the fence by the high jump mats.
Coaches will NOT be permitted inside the black fence surrounding the track and will be limited to these areas only.
Your coach’s lanyard will allow you to exit and enter throughout the day without having to be rechecked. Please carry your accreditation on both days.
Everyone will be required to wear a mask to enter and exit the track. Coaches and officials will be required to keep their masks at all times.. Athletes may take their masks off in the warm up zones. They will be requested to wear them again to be taken to the starting line of their events. Masks will need to be worn to approach any official or volunteer. Athletes, coaches and officials only will be allowed access to the main washrooms and once again you must be masked to enter.
All warm ups will be done on the soccer fields and it is expected that social spacing will be done by all in that zone. Coaches will have to remain in the warm up zone or in the stands while their athlete is warming up or competing.
