About Us

Athletics South runs the local summer track and field (October - March) and winter cross country (April - September) competition in Southern Tasmania.

Athletics caters for participants from 10 years of age through to masters - and at all levels of  ability.


The summer track & field programs are generally held each Saturday afternoon and the programs run to a timetable - so you know when your preferred events are scheduled - you do need to register for the events 30 minutes prior to the events listed starting time.


The Athletics South Winter Season commences on the first Saturday in April and extends through until the end of September.

Our History

(Adapted from speech notes prepared for the Athletics South 50th anniversary dinner held in February 2005.)

On 16 September 1954 the inaugural meeting of the Southern Amateur Athletic Branch was conducted in the RSL Building, Macquarie Street, Hobart.
