Saturday, 24 Aug 2019, 09:30 to 11:30: Wellington Road Walking Championships, General Motors Course, Trentham ×
Updated 12 May 2019.

Wellington Road Walking Championships
A fully judged 10km race held over the GM course at Trentham, including a B category.

Entry fee $10

Athletics NZ registration is required for official placings and medals in the Wellington Championships.

All judged races will have a B Division for walkers that do not have a legitimate race walking technique. The Race Walking Judges will scrutinize walkers in the B Division race, to ensure that although they do not straighten their knees there is no loss of contact, and to make sure walkers are not running or “creeping” and gaining an advantage. If they are judged to be gaining an advantage the judges will issue cautions and red cards as in the A Division and the race organisers may decline to include them in the race results.

Updated 15 Apr 2019.

When numbers were low during WW1 three Wellington clubs combined - WHAC, Olympic, and Scottish - to form Trinity Harriers. Come along for a social run from the WHAC Clubrooms to help us keep  those relationships strong.

Bring a plate to share.
