The 2017 Christie-Phoenix Insurance Victoria Track Series will include five track meets that will take place from May 13 to June 24. Meet four that happens on Thursday, June 8 will be included with the Victoria Track Classic, an international track meet that showcases some of Canada’s biggest talents.

“Many athletes will want to qualify for the IAAF World Championships that are taking place in London, England this year,” said Series Director, Christopher Kelsall. “Last year, several Rio Olympians competed in Victoria including national record holder Melissa Bishop. It’s an exciting meet with a great history.”
