Winter Harrier Season (April to September)

Many Senior athletes participate in the Winter Harrier season as a great way to stay fit and socialise with friends.  

Many clubs offer social running groups who meet weekly or arrange social trips to attend races in other regions.  Just get in touch.  Running in a group is always more fun than running solo.

At Athletics Otago we have wonderful support from the Clubs who help to organise multiple Road, Cross Country, Trial or Relay events.
