2018 New Zealand Track & Field Classics Series

The New Zealand Track & Field Classics Series offers athletes the opportunity to compete in high quality meetings around the country. The Classics meets provide good competition throughout January and early February for athletes preparing to target the New Zealand Track & Field Championships in March. Several international athletes are also invited. In 2018 several of these competitions will form the official NZ Commonwealth Games Trials for athletics - adding another level of intensity.
