ATHLETE ACCREDITATION

Athletes will receive their meet packages at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel (Meet Central) or at the Percy Perry Stadium in Coquitlam. This year, athletes will be supplied with one bib with their names and are asked to attach these to the front of their singlets. The exception will be the pole vault where bib can be used on back. Hip numbers will be assigned and distributed at the line start of each track event and must be affixed to both right and left sides of all athletes.

 

WARM-UP AREA

Runners can use Coquitlam Town Centre Park trails and stadium back stretch of track to warm-up prior to their event. After marshaling athletes, will be escorted onto the track and allowed to set their blocks and to do a quick stride. For field event athletes there will be official warm-ups prior to the competition.

 

MARSHALING AND ATHLETE CONTROL CENTRE

Marshaling will take place at the start location for each event 20 to 30 minutes before the posted start time.  Runners can use Coquitlam Town Centre Park trails and back stretch of the track to warm up prior to their event. Once marshaling for an event is complete track athletes will be allowed to set their blocks and to do a quick stride – for field event athletes, there will be official warm ups prior to the start of the competition. Athletes will be required to assemble for the official introductions prior to the start of the event.

 

GROUND TRANSPORTATION

The best way to get to Percy Perry Stadium is via the official bus provided from the meet hotel in Richmond. Percy Perry Stadium is located near the terminus station of the Evergreen Line at the Lafarge Lake Douglas station.

Travel time from Lansdowne station in Richmond on the Canada Line to Lafarge Lake Douglas station on the Evergreen Line is approximately 90 minutes via Skytrain plus an 800m walk to Percy Perry Stadium

 

THERAPY

Will be available at both the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel and Perry Perry Stadium. Schedules are posted at the Meet Central room.
