Lake City Athletic Club

Welcome to Rotorua’s historic running club – ‘Lake City Athletic Club’

Lake City Athletic Club Incorporated


The 12-month membership for senior (20+) athletes and social members will continue on a rolling basis from the day of purchase and expire on the same day the following year.

The previous Social Member class will continue to be divided into two classes.

(A) – Social (Active) Members. These members can take part in club Winter activities (Saturday harrier events) and/or summer track activities and will pay the full club subscription and the ANZ fees. (Please note there has been a reduction in the ANZ levy).

(B) – Social (Passive) Members.

At the basic information screen click on “Club Volunteer” – this will take you to next screen that will show: –

“2024/2025 Social Passive Member,” – Click on next to proceed.

These members will not be able to take part in any club Winter or Summer track activities. They can, however, still take part in the likes of our organised events for which a separate entry fee is payable (e.g., Red Stag Half Marathon or the Trout Fly). This is a category that will apply to many of our social members who join to be able to use the clubrooms as a base (alone or in conjunction with other members) and /or who kindly provide their volunteer services in helping the club operate it events and other activities. These members will pay only the full club subscription (and no fee to Athletics NZ or Athletics Waikato BOP).

All other membership categories remain unchanged.

Note that all fees payable (to both ANZ, Athletics Waikato BOP and the Club) are incorporated into the detail of the on-line membership system. Members simply choose the membership option applicable to them and complete the on-line form (and of course, pay the resultant total membership fee).
