The Vernon Hammer Classic is designed as an annual competitive event for the education, benefit and edification of hammer throwers everywhere.

Get Hammered!
Welcome to Vernon. There are few Olympic caliber track and fields in the world, and specifically the hammer circle at Greater Vernon Athletics Park, that can boast of such an incredible Vista and spectacular view equal to that of Kalamalka Lake and the beautiful Okanagan Valley.
Each time you train and compete in this unique setting, you are given a chance to harmonize your spirit with a truly remarkable gift from Nature. To many Vernon residents, Kal Lake is one of the most picturesque settings in the world. Come to Vernon to compete, and watch Kal Lake sparkle in the summer sun with its alluring colors of blue and green and emerald. Each time you throw out into the hammer field from our circle, you are literally walking out into a land of enchantment and enterprise.
