Our Races

The harrier season (winter cross country and road racing) is jam-packed with races, with one every second weekend, on average. They are made up of club races (organised by the club for the club), inter-club races (Wellington-based races for the Wellington clubs), and for those who are serious (and good enough!), the national championship races organised by Athletics New Zealand. The Wellington Masters Athletics also organises a number of races for masters athletes.

Over summer, Athletics Wellington runs a track and field programme based at the track at Newtown Park.
