Wesley Harrier & Athletic Club
has a proud tradition going back to 1933.

Whilst our 'home base' is Greenwood's Corner in Epsom our runners reside all over Auckland (including the North Shore).
The majority of the season's events are held Saturday afternoons at different places around Greater Auckland so those involved in other morning winter sports can compete.

Junior Summer Athletics
If you are wanting to run in the summer but haven't previously joined a club then check out Hillsborough Junior Athletic Club. This is where most of our runners go over summer. Just remember you do not need to pay registration to Athletics Auckland as your registration through Wesley lasts up until the start of the winter season next year.
Malcolm Hicks Commonwealth Qualifier Fundraiser
We have started a travel fund for Malcolm as he attempts to qualify for the Commonwealth Games next year. Currently Malcolm funds all his own travel and takes unpaid leave from work to pursue his running goals. This is a great opportunity for the club to get behind our #1 runner and let him focus on the running rather than the money.
Malcolm is planning to race in Aussie at least 3 or 4 times this summer; Hobart, Newcastle, Sydney and Melbourne are the big ones on his calendar.
Depending on qualification Malcolm may then head to the States for two big 5000m races and then possibly later to Europe.
If you would like to get behind Malcolm then you can simply contribute directly to the Travel Fund by transferring to the club account (BNZ Henderson 020152 0191221 00) and noting Hicks CGQF.
