The Racers Grand Prix has been announced as one of nine meets in the 2020 World Athletics Continental tour series.
The continental tour is a series of the world’s best one-day meetings outside the diamond league.
Comprising meetings from around the world, the continental tour will be divided into three levels – gold, silver and bronze – whose status will be determined by the quality of competition and prize money on offer.
It’s understood that the Racers Grand Prix has been given a gold designation.
The 2020 continental tour gold events will take place across Asia, Europe and North America, and will include some of the sport’s most venerable meetings, which honour some of athletics’ greatest legends.
They include the fanny blankers Koen Games in Hengelo, Netherlands, the Nurmi Games in Turku, Finland, and the Skolimowska Memorial in Silesia, Poland.
Other renowned meetings on the tour include the Golden Spike in Ostrava, Czech Republic, the Hanzekovic memorial in the Croatian capital Zagreb and the Racers Grand Prix in Kingston, made famous by world 100metres and 200metres record holder Usain Bolt.
