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 record holders, 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.

This year’s event will be a part of Athletics Canada’s National Track and Field Tour, a series of ten high-performance track and field meets scheduled for the 2022 outdoor season. The Tour will look to build off the success of the 2021 Tokyo Qualifying Series, which helped provide important competitive opportunities to our Canadian Athletes during the pandemic. It will provide meaningful competition opportunities for athletes at home, to host events whereby Canadian athletes can earn valuable World Ranking points, and to help develop athletes for future National Team representation. The Tour is scheduled to begin on May 14, and is expected to run until the 2022 World Athletics Championship in Oregon in mid-July.

The meet will also be a Bronze level feature on the World Athletics Continental Tour. This means that select events will receive C level Placing Points towards athletes' world rankings.
