Atletissima 2016

An important date to book in your agenda

Here we are with the 20th edition of Atletissima Namur, a meeting organised by SMAC (Sambre et Meuse Athletics Club) Namur that has now been one of the top events in the athletics calendar for almost two decades.

First established in 1996 with the backing of the local and regional authorities, Atletissima Namur, its name a play on the French words “Athlétisme à Namur”, has grown in stature from year to year on the EAP circuit (Europe Athlétisme Promotion).

The meeting is a must for athletes chasing qualifying times and standards for the big international meetings.

The timing of the meeting at the end of May makes it ideal for the top athletes in Belgium, including the cream of French-speaking Belgium, and for many other athletes from Europe trying to qualify for the World Championships in Pekin and the European Junior Championships.
