has a proud tradition going back to 1933.
We have current New Zealand representatives in athletics, cross country, triathlon and duathlon.
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.

NEW CENTRAL REGISTRATION SYSTEM
Athletics NZ have introduced a new registration system which all clubs are being forced to use. You will be able to manage your details personally, at some point, but there is a confidentiality aspect that you should be made aware of.
The new system allows any club registra to look up any athlete in the system. The information they can see is your registration number, full name and birth date. The reason this facility exists is to allow registras to request Athletics NZ to move athletes who are transferring clubs. We have identified this issue to ANZ but despite ongoing flagging of this issue they have ignored our request for this to be addressed.
If you are concerned about this then please
Still to join up then just print the registration form and bring along to the next event or email it in Registration form for 2015/16 season
