Athletics for all

The Olympic Harrier and Athletics Club offers athletics in the summer and cross country and road running in the winter. We're a year round club with coaching, club days and club trips on offer throughout the year - no matter how young or old you are.

We are one of the biggest junior athletics clubs in the Wellington region and have won the overall junior interclub and 7 to 9 year old interclub trophies many times.

We offer something for serious and social athletes. There’s Wednesday night club night, coaching and trainings five days a week, interclub, Colgate games and more.

Registration is now open - check out some details on the new registration process
