THE OLYMPIC HARRIER AND ATHLETIC 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.
If you are competing at an interclub you must wear your Colgate age flash, if you have misplaced it please contact Vivian at.
Registration is available for the 2018/19 summer season now at THIS LINK
Olympic will be hosting interclubs 4 and 6, when hosting we run the BBQ and bake sale and it is a very good fundraising method for the club. We will be sending an email out to club members prior to the interclubs asking for volunteers to help on the BBQ and for donations of BBQ supplies and baking.
Over the summer we hold junior athletics club nights on Mondays at Grenada North Park in Tawa. We run the Athletics NZ Get Set Go programme for Under 7s (3 to 6 year olds) at the same time as our club nights for those aged 7 to 14 year olds. 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.

There are lots of training options in the winter for all our members including juniors, college age, seniors and masters. These are held at a range of venues. We also have pre season athletics training over the winter months starting. See the tab COACHING for more info.
SHOE CLINIC PORIRUA
Our Olympic Club is supported by the SHOE CLINIC IN PORIRUA: If you're looking for running or walking shoes, spikes or running gear go and see Jeremy and his team at Shoe Clinic in the North City Shopping Centre in Porirua. They can order in shoes especially for you if they're not on the shop floor. They're very helpful and give 10% of your sale back to the club - you just need to say yu're an Olympic member. Sign up with them and they'll keep track of your purchases. Once you reach $500 they give you a $50 gift voucher: https://www.shoeclinic.co.nz/porirua-running-shoe.html
