The Fourth Felix Sanchez Athletics Classic is taking place this Saturday, 20 April 2024 at the Luguelin Santos track in Bayaguana, Monte Plata province, as of 2pm.

The event is held at the Monte Plata track given that the largest stadium in the country, the Felix Sanchez Olympic Stadium for the past years has been dedicated to international artist shows that have damaged the track.

The stadium will host the track competitions for the Central American and Caribbean Games in 2026.
