Athletics Otago organises events all year round for children aged 7-14 years (age as at 31 December). Events are separated into two seasons. Winter, for Cross-country, Road and Trail running and  Summer for Track & Field. Our summer season starts at the 1st of October and concludes at the 31st of March.

Winter (2022 season program will be posted February 2022)

Summer  (coming soon)

During summer, Athletics Otago run an Interclub competition on Saturdays (generally in the morning). These meetings include a wide range of events which are adjusted to suit the age of the participants. Children compete and remain with their own age grade as they circulate around a selection of events. Children are encouraged to participate in all the events on offer but are they are not reqired to if they do not want to. These events offer a great opportunity to meet and socialise with children their own age in a fun and supportive environment.

If you wish to be involved in athletics, your first step is to join a club. The nearest club to you can be found here.
