What's On for the summer Season
The Summer Track and Field season runs from October to April. There are a wide range of events at national, regional, club and schools levels that cater for participants of all ages and abilities. Check out some of the options below and see the Athletics Auckland event calendar
ACA Runs a club night most Wednesdays, 6:00pm at Mt Smart Track in Penrose throughout the summer season. This involves a series of timed events from the 60m sprint to 5000m on the track depending on demand. We will also offer coaching on demand and some of our coaches squads will train at this time. Please see our 2023.24 Club Night Schedule for details
ACA RACE NIGHTS
This season we will run a night series of mini-meets under lights called the ACA Race Nights. These are FAST and FURIOUS, both in terms of format - 6 events in 1.5 hours - not to mention the amazing times. At our last ACA Race Night over 30% of competitors got a PB! With Mt Smart renovated we are excited to get these going again. They are scheduled for Wednesdays (from 8pm) on Nov 1st, Nov 22nd, Jan 17th and Mar 28th. Find out more and/or register here.
