In October 2017, Athletics Canada announced that it will play host to the 2018 NACAC Track and Field Championships. The three-day event will take place from Aug. 10-12 at Varsity Stadium, in the heart of downtown Toronto, and will be known as Toronto 2018: Track & Field in the 6ix.
The Championships will feature more than 600 athletes from 31 different countries throughout North America, Central America and the Caribbean, in 42 different track and field events. Replicating the atmosphere at the 2015 Pan American Games, Toronto 2018: Track & Field in the 6ix will showcase live music, exciting athlete introductions, first-rate in-stadium hosting, street exhibitions and will celebrate Toronto’s vibrant Latin American and Caribbean culture.
As the host country, Athletics Canada plans to field a full team that will feature its top track and field athletes, including Olympic medalist Andre De Grasse, World medalist Aaron Brown, and Commonwealth Games Champion Alysha Newman.
In addition to the track and field events being held at Varsity Stadium, the Toronto Islands will host the 20 km race walk events on the only IAAF certified race walk course in Canada.
