Welcome to Queenstown Athletics

Queenstown Athletic Club (previously known as Remarkable Runners) has been operating in the Wakatipu region for over 30 years and aims to provide our Members a community in which to enjoy participation and achievement in Harriers and Athletics.

Queenstown Athletic Club has an active Junior Athletics Club (still known as Remarkable Runners) for athletes from 5 to 13 years. The sessions are run at the Queenstown Events Centre and also Arrowtown School throughout the season (October 2019 to March 2020, school terms 4 and 1 only). Coaching and training is given in a wide variety of athletic disciplines using a fun skills programme developed by Athletics NZ. 

JUNIOR ATHLETICS – For Primary school children – aged 5 to 14 yrs 

Training sessions for juniors take place over terms 4 and 1 in two centres, either Frankton or Arrowtown.

The focus is to introduce a range of disciplines in a fun learning environment, recording times and distances and improving overall athletic skills. We rely heavily on parents to help run these junior sessions. 2019/2020 Registrations for juniors will open again in October 2019. More information under the Junior Athletics tab.

QUEENSTOWN HARRIERS SQUAD – For Secondary school athletes – aged 13 to 18 yrs and Open categories. We train all year round and generally compete in Southland and nationally (although if preferred one can compete in Otago). Please register using the link on Harriers Page. This link affiliates us with Southland. If you’d prefer to compete in Otago, please use the general link below.

    Our new athletic season for Juniors (7-14) starts again in term 4. Join us at an Open Day to try it out for free to see if you'd like to join our club. Two venues, two dates: Queenstown Event Centre on Thursday 17 Oct (starting 4.30 - 6pm) or at Arrowtown School on Friday 18 Oct (starting 4 - 5.30pm). Parent help will be most appreciated for these sessions. We will give you a quick intro on how the club works, what a "social" and "competitive" member is and what competitive members can look forward to. Then we'll get stuck into some training and fun athletic skill games. Dress appropriately for running and jumping (no skirts or jeans). For cancellation in the event of bad weather, please visit our Facebook page by 2.30pm. No notice on Facebook means the sessions still go ahead.
