The CALTAF Track Classic is an annual track and field meet hosted by CALTAF. Originally named the CALTAF Relays in the late 1980’s, there was a name change in 2000 that better encompasses what the meet is all about. It showcases many of Alberta’s finest track and field athletes of all ages, as well as some of Canada’s current and best track and field stars.In the past, the majority of athletes who compete at the CALTAF Track Classic are younger age-class athletes eager to test their limits and see how far their hard work and dedication can take them. Moving forward, there will be a greater emphasis on expanding the open category and inviting our American neighbours to come up and take advantage of competing at altitude. This will allow the younger competitors to not only compete at a major competition, but also enjoy watching some of Canada’s top international level athletes.
Over the years, the CALTAF Track Classic has been fortunate to host a number of Canadian Track and Field stars such as former 100m World Record holder, Donovan Bailey. More recently, spectators and athletes have had the pleasure of watching current World Championship athletes and Olympians: Bryan Barnett, Jim Steacy, Jessica Zelinka, Angela Whyte, Kelsie Hendry, Sam Effah and Amonn Nelson.
