Athletics Southland Track Information

Athletics Southland have great pleasure in announcing that they have secured all the funds necessary to proceed with the track replacement. Many thanks to our Community funders who recognize that the track is an very important facility used and enjoyed by the wider Southland Community .

Funders that contributed were Community Trust South , ILT , NZ Lotteries , The Southern Trust and New Zealand Racing Board .

This is a significant undertaking and unfortunately will disrupt the second half of the track & Field season.

From the 2nd December 2019 until approximately the end of March 2020 the track will be unavailable for events or training purposes. The Track & Field committee are busy working through the season program and hope to have this out in the coming weeks. Post Xmas children’s events will be held on grass tracks throughout Southland ,being Wyndham, Gore ,Winton & possibly Queenstown. Seniors wishing to compete during this time will most likely have to travel to Dunedin. Athletics Southland may provide transport to Dunedin if numbers warrant it. More information will come out in the coming weeks on how the season will run.

 

Southland Harriers would like to acknowledge and thank 

our sponsors of the 2019 Southland Festival of Running - ILT, and ILT Foundation,  Ascot Park Hotel, Shoe Clinic Invercargill, McDermott Coachlines, Riverton Holiday Park
