Welcome to the Gippsland Athletics Club Website

Gippsland Athletics club was founded in 1955. Our aim is to promote, encourage and improve athletic competition in the Gippsland Region. We offer a relaxed and friendly environment for individuals and families and encourage participation from all ages and abilities. Athletes compete in age groups from U14 up to Masters. Regular track and field competition is held from October to March on Tuesday evenings starting at 6.00pm at the Joe Carmody Athletics Track in Newborough.

The official athletics year runs April to March. We encourage all past and current Gippsland Athletics members to resign for the 2015/16 season. This is now completed through the AV website - see the "Join" link for more details and our membership fees.

Our track season begins in early October 2015. Members can also compete in the AV cross-country series over winter - either as individuals, or we encourage a 2nd club registration with Traralgon Harriers to join their winter team.

Training and coaching sessions (most likely on Sunday afternoons at the Newborough track) will begin around August - more information will be circulated closer to this time.
