30 June 2020 - 7h26

The Monegasque Athletics Federation invites spectators to book now their evening of Friday August 14th at the Louis-II stadium to attend the 2020 edition of the Herculis EBS meeting. Originally scheduled for July 10th, it was postponed for a month, subject to an improvement in the health situation.

This is a positive sign as several demonstrations have finally announced their cancellation, like the Monaco Yacht Show next September. The Herculis EBS meeting, organized in close collaboration with the Monaco authorities, the Wanda Diamond League and World Athletics, which had been postponed to August 14th, is now awaiting its audience. Several big names are already announced. Among them, Joshua Cheptegei, winner of the 2019 Diamond League of the 5,000m. The Ugandan athlete also made a name for himself by winning the world record for the 5km road race during the last edition of the Monaco Run. Sifan Hassan, winner of the 2019 Diamond League of the 1500m and 5000m, Yulimar Rojas, quadruple world champion in the triple jump and the French howler Pascal Martinot-Lagarde, bronze medalist at the Doha world championships and record holder for France of the 110m hurdles will also take part in the competition.

13 events for the Monaco stage

The meeting offers more than a dozen events. The 100m, 400m, 1000m, 5000m, triple jump and high jump for women and the 200m, 800m, 1500m, 5000m, 110m hurdles, 3000 steeplechase and pole vault for men. The prices range from 10 to 50 euros and reservations are made directly on the meeting site. For those who had already purchased their tickets, they will be automatically postponed and valid as of August 14th.
