ABOUT COLLINGWOOD HARRIERS
Collingwood Harriers caters for athletes of all ages and standards. We can give you the opportunity to compete at the highest level in both summer and winter fixtures run by Athletics Victoria as well as providing club events in which friends and family are welcome to participate by invitation.
We are one of the largest clubs in Australia, fielding teams in most divisions at each event in the Athletics Victoria Winter Cross Country and Road season. This includes U14, U16, U18, U20, Open, 40+ and 50+ levels, the Open has 7 mens divisions and 5 womens divisions.
Our summer track and field teams compete in the Eastern Region which boasts the largest number of competitors in any summer competition in Australia. All events are catered for and elite athletes have the opportunity to progress to State and National competitions. Collingwood has a number of Victorian and Australian champions.
We also lay claim to a few former Olympians and World Championship representatives who can provide expert advice and encouragement or simply allow you the opportunity to live vicariously through their achievements.
Collingwood is a great family club. A large number of families have fielded members over two or three generations. Indeed, it is not unusual to see parents and their children competing alongside each other.
Our fees are among the cheapest of metropolitan clubs as only a small surcharge is added to the A.V. registration component.
We have a hard-working committee composed of competing athletes, officials and other long-standing members whose competition days are in the past but who value the camaraderie that belonging to Collingwood Harriers provides. Whether you want to compete for glory or simply run for fun and fitness, Collingwood Harriers can help you get started in a friendly and supportive environment.
