UVic receives quarter-million-dollar investment for running track

July 18, 2017

The running track at the University of Victoria’s Centennial Stadium will be resurfaced with the support of a $254K federal investment. With an overall budget of $694K, the project is expected to be complete by mid-August 2017. The track’s renewal is a priority project for the university, as it is the primary track facility for the Greater Victoria community and is enjoyed by elite athletes, as well as school children, teams and clubs. “Centennial Stadium’s running track is a key part of the UVic campus and community,” said Director of UVic Vikes Athletics and Recreation Clint Hamilton. “The support from the Canada 150 community infrastructure program is going to ensure that both the legacy of excellence previously achieved and yet to be achieved can continue for our entire Vikes community for many years to come.” UVic
