OVERVIEW

Athletics Wellington Senior track and field meets are predominantly at Newtown Park Athletics Stadium or  the  Colin Pugh Sportsbowl, Masterton.  On occasions Junior [Under 14] athletes will compete alongside Seniors.  There is a wide range of events in other locations that may be of interest in the Lower North Island region and nationally significant events  throughout  New Zealand for senior athletes. Senior athletes are almost always welcome to compete in other centre meetings throughout the country if you are a registered club athlete for Athletics Wellington club. 

EVENTS

Predominantly Athletics Wellington sanctioned meetings are held on a Saturday afternoon and on occasion mid week twilights are staged as per the calendar.
Each meeting will have a specific timetable of events published in advance on this website  closer to the time of each event.  Updates and notifications will also be posted on AW Facebook.
