This is going to be another great season for UC Athletics. Let us hope that we don't get interrupted this year by Covid -19.
We are all looking forward to seeing you all out there in your Maroon and Gold.
Established in 1898 we are a club with a proud history, for 123 years we have been running, socialising and motivating people to get out there and give it a go! We cater for ALL athletes from the weekend warrior to the world class! It does not matter how old or fit you currently are, we all start somewhere, most of our top athletes came from humble beginnings and have trained hard to get to where they are now.
UC Athletics puts a big emphasis on relays, and running as a team. We enter all local relay events and send teams away to the annual Lovelock Relays in Dunedin and National Road Relays to be at the Takahe to Akaroa Relay this year. The club currently has a great depth of talent throughout all age groups, which has seen members dominate recent distance events throughout Canterbury and New Zealand. We aim to foster and encourage all athletes to reach their goals. Current members are enthusiastic and ready to share their passion for our sport with you!
We have experienced and successful coaches for all events and distances, regular social runs and events, a large variety of group training sessions for all ages including a strength and conditioning circuit training block during the winter
