About Marlborough Children's Athletics
We believe that being involved in athletics will not only make children into better athletes but will also help improve fitness and improve their ability in other sports by helping them run faster, jump higher and throw further. We aim to teach the development of the correct techniques and skills in a friendly, fun way.
Marlborough Children's Athletics club nights take place every Wednesday from 5.30-7.00pm at Athletic Park, Brewer Street, Blenheim.
The athletics season runs from approximately mid-October to approximately the end of March each year, with a break over school summer holidays.
The 2019-2020 season starts on Wednesday 16th October 2019.
5-6 year olds
We have a junior section, which caters for 5-6 year olds. The emphasis on this group is to introduce children to track and field events, focusing on the development of the correct techniques and skills - while having fun!
7-15 year olds
Our older children, aged 7-15 year old, take part in a more structured programme focussed on age-appropriate events.
Track events include 60 metres, 100 metres, and 200 metres (for the younger ages) and races of 100 metres, 200 metres, 400 metres, 800 metres, and 1,500 metres (for the older children).
Field events include High Jump, Long Jump, Discus and Shot Put.
