Capital Classic - 18 January

  • The Capital Classic, on Friday 18 January is one of New Zealand's premier track and field meetings. It starts at 4.30pm and features a full track and field evening programme. The highlights are the women's and men's 3000m New Zealand Championships. Some of Scottish's top athletes will be competing (you can enter here) but even if you are not competing, do come along to watch. Scottish runners like Anne Hare, Rees Buck, John Henwood, and Hamish Carson have previously won this national title multiple times.

Jumbo Holdsworth Mountain Trail Races - 26 January

  • The Jumbo-Holdsworth Trail Races starts at 8am from the Mt Holdsworth H.Q. carpark, Tararua Forest Park. You can either race the 24 km loop to Mt Jumbo then Mt Holdsworth or you can go in the other direction - Holdsworth, then Jumbo. Or you can do the shorter 12km Hooper Loop. These races form part of the Scottish Summer Series.

Round the Bays - 17 February

  • Round the Bays is the biggest running event in Wellington with thousands of competitors each year. There are three events to choose from 6.5 km from Frank Kitts Park to Kilbirnie Park, 10km or a half marathon. There is always a big turn out of Wellington Scottish singlets and it is an important start to the season and recruitment opportunity for us. Look out for our tent at the finish.
