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.
**** First club night of 2021 is 3 February. Last club night is 17 March 2021 ****
Over the summer we hold junior athletics club nights on Wednesdays at Grenada North Park in Tawa.
We are privileged to have specialist coaching each week day afternoon from Amanda Goldsmith. Training covers long jump, high jump (age 10 and over), sprints, starts, hurdles (age 12 and over), endurance and relays. For more details please contact Amanda on 021 614 064.
