Southern Oregon University alum Eric Avila is scheduled to compete in the Victoria International Track Classic in Victoria, British Columbia today.

Avila is one of 20 runners set to compete in the developmental 800 at Centennial Stadium. Also on the Classic itinerary is an elite 800 for more accomplished runners.

The developmental 800 is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and can be viewed online via a live video stream. The link can be found at
