Event information

This event has passed.

Athletics Wollongong hosts a weekly track and field meet at Beaton Park, each Wednesday from 5:30pm, October through to March.  It's a friendly and social occasion where participants can experience all athletics disciplines with quality equipment. 

The club has one of the strongest groups of Masters athletes (i.e. those over 30yo) in the state.  With age groups going down to Under 10s, athletics - with AW - is for the whole family.

If you're interested in joining the club you can learn more about us via the:

Note that this particular evening we won't be holding competitive events.  As registrations for members returning for season 2023/24 are only scheduled to open at some time during this day, the Committee determined not to hold a meet on October 4th in case of any delays or problems. 

Instead, this is an opportunity for people to come to the track for a look, have a chat with Committee members about the club and their AW membership, or pick up a uniform.  New members will also have a chance to learn how to conduct/participate in events safely and see how our meets run - without the hustle and bustle of a regular club night.  You're, of course, also welcome to have a trot around the oval - to ease your way into the new track and field season.  (NB - track admission charges apply; just like a regular meet).

The following week the track is scheduled to be closed for cleaning, which means we will not have a Practice Week on October 11th (you're instead invited to the club sponsor Wollongong Tennis Club for a social evening).

Our fun and social pointscore competition will commence on October 18th.
