Cosmos Sports and its partner TrackTown Canada have been working extensively in the past few weeks, leading up to this weekend’s high-profile premiere event of the 2015 Canadian track-and-field season.
From July 2nd through July 5th Edmonton will host the first ever Canadian Junior, Senior, and Para-Track and Field Championships. The event, set to take place at Foote Field on the University of Alberta’s campus, will mark the first of three high-profile track and field competitions set to take place in Edmonton this summer.
This championships event will play a pertinent role in the remainder of the season, as it will serve as the selection trials for the Pan-Am Junior Championships set to take place later this month from July 31st through August 2nd. In addition, it will also serve as selection trials for the 2015 World Track and Field Championships set to be held in Beijing, China, from August 22nd to August 30th. Evan Colborne, Manager of Business Operations, Cosmos Sports had to say:
"With three world class events taking place this summer, Edmontonians will be in for a real treat. The careful planning that has gone into each event is sure to be noticed by fans when they arrive on site. The events are designed to offer something for everyone, whether a track & field fab or not. The Canadian Track & Field Championships are the perfect way to kick off this exciting Summer of Sport in Edmonton".
Over the course of the past few months, Cosmos Sports has been tremendously active in raising awareness of the Tracktown Canada brand. Through reaching out to community groups, schools, and the greater Edmonton community, the prominence of these track and field events as well as the TrackTown Canada organization has begun to be realized. In addition, Cosmos has also been providing ticket sales support through the sale of single event, full-event, and full-season passes.
