Welcome to Leith Harrier & Athletic Club

Join Leith Athletics

If you love road running, track athletics, cross country running, mountain running and trail running, then Leith is the club for you. Since 1925 Leith has welcomed people from Otago and further afield to share their passion. The benefits of joining our club are many. You can take advantage of excellent coaching, at no extra charge, and a variety of training sessions to meet your needs. Leith prides itself on being extremely supportive to all its athletes and enjoys a great social aspect too.

Note: If you are planning to join Leith between now and 1st April 2022, please contact Greg Johnson.  It would be better to leave registering with the club until after 1 April 2022 – see reasons below

Athletics New Zealand Year is from 1 April – 31 March the following year.  A new registration is required from 1 April each year.
(Example 1 April 2022- 31 March 2023)
Reason for this is that this period encompasses winter and summer seasons.
(Winter season 1 April – 30 September. Summer Season 1 October – 31 March)
Competitive Membership must be via a club. Subscription is for the full Athletics Year (1 April- 31 March)
Competitive Members can compete in all Athletics Otago, Athletics New Zealand events and
