About Us

About Athletics Canterbury


Athletics Canterbury Inc. is a not-for profit Regional Sporting Organisation based in the South Island, New Zealand.  We represent track and field as well as road, trail and cross-country running, throughout Canterbury, and the West Coast.

Athletics Canterbury encourages people of all ages (from children to masters), ethnicities, and abilities to get involved whether as an athlete, coach, or official.   Our varied programmes and events are aimed at improving health and providing connection with others, as well as fostering skill development and high performance.  Athletics provides multiple opportunities for leadership and for local volunteering.

We are based at our modern athletics stadium located in the Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub complex.  Built in 2018 it is a key asset we wish to see embraced by the wider community.

We are continuing to evolve and include everyone in our sport so they can develop and grow at their pace while enjoying being involved in a supportive community.
