Temporary Suspension of 2020 Harriers Season 18 Mar 2020.


Important Message to All Members and Supporters – Temporary Suspension of 2020 Harriers Season

The Committee has been communicating with Athletics Wellington on approaches necessary to limit the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

Based on advice received, we are suspending all club harrier events and Saturday club days until May 2020.  The suspension also applies to interclub harrier events.  This follows the recent cancellation of a number of late-season track and field events.

The suspension is effective immediately.  This means that the Maiden Perston races will not be held this Saturday, 21st March.  We will also not be visiting the Johnsonville Bowling Club for our club days until further notice.

Some club activities can continue in the interim.  These include outdoor training sessions and indoor core training classes held in the Johnsonville Rugby Club at Helston Park.  However, we ask that you keep communicating with coaches and follow current health advice to protect yourselves and others.  For example, please practice ‘social distancing’ at training and if you are feeling unwell, you should stay away from any activities.

We will be reviewing the situation regularly in conjunction with Athletics Wellington.  Things are obviously very fluid currently and therefore subject to change.

Olympic Harriers and Athletics Committee.
