This is the inaugural edition of The Province Percy Williams Indoor Games which feature a new format, an evolution from the Gran Forza V team event, that creates a wider opportunity for high school teams as well as open, masters and junior development athletes to compete on the indoor track and field complex at the Richmond Olympic Oval.  The facility accommodates a level, 5-lane, 200 metre oval running track plus room for shot put and high jump.  In addition, a separate 100m straightaway offers a safe, 5-lane environment for up to 60m sprint and 60m hurdles events.

Check-in must occur no later than 15 minutes before the posted start times.  The athlete control clerks will escort competitors to the start of their event when it is time.   


Covered pay parking ($1.00 per hour) is available at the Oval.  In addition, West Park is a multi-level parking lot with access off River Road just east of the Lobby entrance to the Oval and with 40 parking stalls available also at $1.00 per hour.  With large groups at special events (like ours) parking becomes quite limited.

To assist with your planning, we have included a map with the above parking options as well as free overflow parking at the large Syscon lot immediately east of the Oval. It is a 5 minute walk from there to the Oval along the river dyke pathway.  To access the map, click here.
