Welcome To Athletics Wellington

Senior

Grand Prix series

During the 2019/20 season, we will hold a points series competition over four meets, where points are awarded for performance (not placing), based on age-adjusted performance standards.  This is a great way to add some fun to our meets.  It allows athletes of all ages to have a chance at getting into the top of the points table if they compete at all meets and perform well.  It also enables competition for points between different disciplines.

The first three of the Grand Prix meets are:

  • Saturday 19 October 2019 (GP1)
  • Saturday 16 November 2019 (GP2)
  • Saturday 25 January 2020 (GP3)

The final Grand Prix event is the Wellington T&F championships on 1-2 February 2020.

The Athletics Wellington Board recently convened a small working group to review our Track and Field programme. The main findings have been distributed to clubs. SEE HERE

Our intentions for the Track and Field programme are set out in a news item HERE

We have prepared a draft planning calendar for the 2019/20 summer season, including Track and Field events at Newtown Park.  Links to the planning calendar and the T&F events matrix are posted below:

The calendar and events matrix are subject to amendment based on feedback and the level of support.

One possibility that we are still considering is to add some mid-week twilight meets.
