Wellington Scottish Athletics Club

Running and Walking in Wellington, New Zealand


We love running in Wellington

Wellington Scottish Athletics Club is one of New Zealand’s largest running clubs. The club is open to all levels of runners from beginners to elite level. Our Wellington running club prides itself on being the friendly running club in the Wellington running community. There is a strong social element and plenty of interaction between various social and competitive groups across the club.

No matter what level you are or what type of running you want to do we have something for you

  • Road Racing
  • Cross Country
  • Track & Field
  • Mountain Running
  • Trail Running

Furthermore, we offer running coaching for all members of our club as part of your membership.


Each year our members compete in the local inter club series of individual and team road and cross-country races and track & field events during summer. These races are suitable for all runners and have no time limits, although some (such as the hilly Vosseler cross-country race) do require a reasonable level of fitness to complete them. Scottish compete each year in a league of three biggest inter club races, the Wellington Cross-Country Championships, the Wellington 10km road championships and the prestigious Dorne Cup, to determine Wellington’s best runners for the year.
