Save the dates for Colgate Games

The Colgate Games are set to return in 2021 for the 43rd year running and Athletics NZ is looking forward to joining with Colgate, Athletics Taranaki and Athletics Tasman to again deliver three days of fun in both the North and South Islands.

The North Island Colgate Games will return to Jubilee Park in Inglewood, Taranaki with the dates set for Friday 8, Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 of January.

The South Island Colgate Games will meanwhile take place the following week at Saxton Fields Sports Grounds in Nelson on Friday 15, Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 of January.

Athletes of all abilities aged seven to 14 years who are registered with an athletics club are welcome to take part.

Registrations will be open from 1 to 26 November and more information is to come but, in the meantime, please save the dates.

We will need officials and volunteers to assist us to run both the North Island and South Island Colgate Games events. If you are able to help in any capacity we would appreciate this.

We encourage you to share this information with your club members and invite them to follow the North Island and South Island Colgate Games events on Facebook for regular updates.
