The Harry Jerome International Track Classic is Canada's longest-running track and field event. In its 38-year history, world and Olympic champions, world recordholders, Canadian stars and young hopefuls have thrilled spectators, achieved personal bests and, thanks to the vision and dedication of the Achilles International Track and Field Society, continued in their quest to become Faster, Higher and Stronger.
The Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome Track Classic is hosted by the Achilles International Track & Field Society, a non-profit society registered in British Columbia. Net proceeds from this event support track and field competition in BC.
The Athletics Canada Tokyo Qualifier Series will offer high-level competitive opportunities on home soil for high performance athletes and Olympic/Paralympic hopefuls. Prize money will be available to the top-placing individuals at most meets, in addition to travel and Integrated Support Team support. The nine meets, which will take place in four provinces and in 10 cities across the country, will offer athletes the opportunity to achieve the Olympic or Paralympic qualification standard and to gain valuable world rankings points.
