2022 Colgate Games to Go Ahead

EVENT UPDATE
In line with current government guidelines including Sport NZ and the Prime Minister’s Office and Cabinet we are delighted to announce that the 2022 Colgate Games will go ahead as planned.

With the locations of both the North Island event – staged at Newtown Park, Wellington from 7-9 January and the South Island Games – hosted at Surrey Park, Invercargill from January 14-16 – currently at orange in the pending traffic system within the Covid-19 Protection Framework – Athletics NZ and the respective LOCs are committed to staging the hugely popular kids athletics event.

Athletics NZ CEO Pete Pfitzinger said: “We are delighted that under the traffic light system the Colgate Games can go ahead with participants from across New Zealand. The Colgate Games are a highlight of the summer calendar and we are committed to holding a fun and safe event.”

The Colgate Games entry deadline is 11.59pm on Sunday 5 December. Entry fees from clubs will only be processed once the event is confirmed. Clubs are encouraged to pay entry fees as soon as possible with the final deadline for payments 31 December 2021.

Please note the events will still need sufficient entries to go ahead, and we will update on this on Monday 6 December. Note too, that following government guidelines for the Colgate Games to proceed the Wellington and Southland regions will need to be at orange or green on the traffic light system.

The Colgate Games is a vaccination pass event with all attendees aged 12 years and three months and older needing to hold a vaccination pass to attend the event. Additional details on the process of how to access the Games venues with vaccination passes will be confirmed in the coming weeks.

For clarification those who need to hold a vaccine pass (all those aged 12 and three months and above) includes athletes, officials, volunteers, vendors, team managers, coaches, parents and spectators.

The Colgate Games is the most iconic children’s athletics event in New Zealand, attracting entrants from clubs across the North and the South Island.
