Thursday August 10, 2017 Written by Published in Other Sports

Track and Field Club Rarotonga is back up and running on Monday from 3.15pm to 4.15pm at the BCI stadium by Tereora College.


With the annual Prince of Wales (POW) primary schools’ athletic competition set for September 27, coaches Ruth Horton and Erin Quirke are training their athletes for these events.

Athletes aged 7 - 15 regularly train every Monday in a variety of track and field events learning skills and drills to build strength, speed and fitness.

The club invites athletes who want to improve their fitness in running events both short and long, who want to improve their long and high jump skills and improve their discus and shot put skills, to attend the Monday club meets. 

Mini competitions will be run before the competition so each participant has a chance to measure their progress against other athletes their ages.

The first mini competition will be on Monday August 14 at BCI stadium, with registration beginning from 3pm. 

Any parents signed up to help with the POW event is welcome to come along to learn the art of time keeping and measuring distances. 

For information see the club’s Facebook page or call Ruth on 51418 or Erin on 55963
