Prize Giving Night

After training on 5th November 2020 please stay for 20 minutes for the prize giving from the 2019/2020 season that we were unable to hold due to lockdown. Trophies to be presented for achievements from last season and ribbons for the Junior athletes. It would be great to see as many people here as possible to support the club.

Otago Children’s Athletics

Wanaka athletes can compete every Saturday at the Caladonian Ground in Dunedin. Its a great experience to run on an all weather track at a well organised event.

It’s not expected that children compete every weekend, but it’s worth the trip a few times each season – especially for the mini-multi competition.
