Canterbury Road Champs



The road season is kicking off with the Canterbury Road Champs hosted by Athletics Canterbury. The race has headed back to Landfill Road for 2022. The laps will either be 1km,  2km or, in the case of the men’s race 2.5km. The course is fully certified.  It is a flat road course, so an ideal speed course.

This Championship event offers registered athletic club runners and affiliated clubs in the region the opportunity to be selected to represent Canterbury in National Road Championships. While the race is open to all competitors, those wishing to be considered for selection must be an Athletics NZ registered member.
