About Athletics New Zealand

Founded in 1887, Athletics New Zealand has a rich heritage of Olympic and Commonwealth Games success. Athletics New Zealand has spawned some of New Zealand’s sporting icons – Jack Lovelock, Peter Snell, John Walker and recently, Beatrice Faumuina, Nick Willis, Valerie Adams and Eliza McCartney. They are part of the sporting fabric of New Zealand – literally – being the first New Zealand sport to wear the colour black in an international sporting context!

 

Athletics New Zealand provides opportunities for all members of communities and each week thousands of people take part in Athletics New Zealand initiatives. From pre-schoolers to school aged children in school and club based athletics activities, to teenagers, adults and masters across a wide range of events and opportunities. From fundamental movement skills programmes, to family club nights in the suburbs, to regional, national and international level competitions.

 

This is achieved via a network of more than 190 clubs from Kaitaia to Invercargill, and with a number of key delivery partners including specific children’s, schools and masters organisations.

Athletics clubs across the country offer fun, inclusive and exciting programmes for all ages.  So if you want to become involved more regularly in running, make new friends or even get a little competitive then joining an Athletics club could be for you.
