Wet weather Policy

Generally, evenings are not cancelled due to wet weather. If in doubt check Athletics Wollongong on Facebook.
If there is lightning we suspend competition with regard to the 30-30 rule: i.e, if there's 30 seconds or less between the flash of lightning and the crack of thunder, we stop.  We resume once 30 minutes has passed since the last observed lightning.  If it's raining (or the infield is closed) we continue participating, though perhaps with some changes to the program for safety reasons - we may shelter briefly if conditions are particularly uncomfortable, but will continue as soon as practicable.

Athletics NSW Events

Athletics Wollongong members, apart from Community Athletes, are eligible and encouraged to compete at Athletics NSW events. These cover track and field competitions in summer plus cross country, road running and road walks during the winter season. Athletes can progress from here to national and international level. More information can be found on the ANSW web site at nswathletics.org.au.

Athletics Wollongong supports Athletics NSW Winter Season events.  Athletes have the opportunity to combine with other clubs in the "South Coast region" in relay events. Check nswathletics.org.au for full details.

Winter Distance Running Pointscore

To encourage club members to keep active during the winter months,  and without the need for a separate winter program, Athletics Wollongong conducts a winter pointscore based on local parkruns. For 2023 we will be organising two point scores - U18 athletes and aged 18+.
The pointscore is held between 1st May and 31st August. Runners must be financial or life members of Athletics Wollongong and be registered with parkrun, go to parkrun.com.au.

Further information can be found at Winter pointscore information.
