Athletics Wellington is the regional body of Athletics New Zealand charged with the promotion and development of athletics, cross country and road running in the Wellington Region.
There are clubs for adults and children throughout the wider Wellington region. There is something for everyone no matter what your shape, size, strength or ability. Athletics Wellington covers all disciplines including athletics, cross country, road running, walking plus organised events and competitions run in partnership with our local clubs.
For college-age athletes and adults there are Saturday afternoon competitions at Newtown Park throughout the summer. These are called the Black and Gold programmes and include track and field events.
There are also opportunities to compete in regional competitions against other clubs from the lower North Island. Get a group together to travel and compete at other athletics tracks in Masterton, Palmerston North and Wanganui or further afield in New Plymouth or Hastings. These regional events often finish with relays - a good way to end the day.
Many of our clubs provide training for children, juniors, seniors and masters. We can put you in contact with a number of coaches in the Wellington region who specialise in coaching various age groups and disciplines.
