About Athletics SA
Athletics SA is responsible for the coordination and delivery of track and field, running and walking in South Australia. We are affiliated with Athletics Australia and offer a range of competitions and programs for people of all abilities and almost all ages.
Contrary to what many believe, Athletics SA is not an organisation that is exclusively for elite athletes. Our programs allow you to participate at a recreational level and the majority of our members join because they love to run, walk, jump or throw to achieve personal satisfaction!
Athletics SA competition operates on a club structure with 14 member clubs spread predominantly throughout metropolitan Adelaide. Membership and participation is structured to allow discounts for regular participation and also has a “pay as you go” structure for those who want to participate on a less frequent basis. We also allow casual participation in our events, which means you don’t need to be a member to participate if you choose not to join up!
Thanks to the City-Bay Fun Run, this exclusive membership offer is available to anyone who has registered for the City-Bay and has not previously been registered with Athletics SA. The offer provides you with a free 12 month membership** (**note membership period is 1st October 2012 to 30th September 2013) to Athletics SA (excluding event registration fees which are provided at a discounted rate to members) .
