Non-Racing Membership $110

Club and inter club races are for runners and walkers of all speeds and abilities. Wellington’s inter club relays and races are some of the most social running occasions of the year, so we encourage new members to try our standard membership.

However, if you do not want to participate in interclub races, relays, track and field or our away trip to National Road Relays you can join Scottish as a non-racing member. You still get all the benefits listed above except free entry into interclub races, relays and track and field events. You will not be eligible to compete at Athletics NZ events and will not get Supporters Trust funding. You will be able to enter some interclub events paying entry as you go, and you can always upgrade to standard membership throughout the year.
