We now have a near-final programme for senior track and field meets at Newtown Park for this season. A link to the latest version of the planning calendar is posted on our website page here: https://athleticswellington.org.nz/senior/ (You can also navigate to this page from the home page via Competitions >> Senior)
One of the new initiatives for this season is a series of mid-week twilight track meets, to be hosted by Wellington Scottish Athletics Club. These meets will commence in November and will be held on Wednesday nights at two week intervals, through until late February. The track programme will be a mix of sprints and middle-distance races, with the distances alternating between meets.
One feature event in the calendar is the Capital Classic (managed by ACE Rogers Sports). This will be held on Saturday 20 February. We welcome the change to holding this event on a Saturday, and are confident this will be well supported by athletes and spectators.
There will be Wellington Champs for various individual events during the season, but this season we will not be staging a 2-day Wellington Centre Champs as in previous years.
