The  Oceania Masters Athletics Championships August Newsletter is now available by clicking here.


Entries will open for the Championships on 18th September 2011, and close on the 15th December 2011. NO LATE ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED. You will be able to enter on line at nzmastersathletics.org.nz and click on the Oceania 2012 link


Half Marathon

The Half Marathon will start and finish at Fergusson Park. This is a short drive from the main stadium. This is a great area, and we have been fortunate to acquire the use of the New soccer clubrooms which have great facilities for us to use.


Accommodation in Tauranga

Tauranga is a very busy place at this time of the year, so if you are planning on attending the Championships please book your accommodation early. Hotels and Motels close to the track are filling up very quickly.



The final programme is shown here, but please note that timing of events may vary once entries are finalised.
