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.
Registration is available for the 2017/18 summer season now at THIS LINK
Registrations close 20 October as we need to make plans for the start of the season based on numbers registered. The more organised you are the more organised we can be :)
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 trophy for the past six years and the 7 to 9 year old interclub trophy for the past three years.
