Zurrieq Wolves Athletics Club (ZWAC) was established in 1988 as part of the Zurrieq Wolves ASC to focus and promote Athletics, participating and organising sportive activities and to participate in sporting and athletic competitions held both locally or abroad.
During the past few years the club established itself in this sport having a growing number of athletes. These athletes start their training from the tender age of 4 in the now formally established (2011) Athletics Academy. ZWAC has athletes at the various age group, starting from Cubs, Cadets, Youths and Seniors(Open) categories. Apart from these various age categories ZWAC are also proud of a number of veteran runners that are still active.
ZWAC focuses on the various disciplines of athletics, from road running to track and field events, which include short, middle and long disctance track races, high-jump, long-jump, shot-put, discuss and javelin. Our athletes also take part in road races, the most popular distances being 10km, half marathons and full marathons. We believe that the successes obtained by our athletes are not only an honour to the athlete himself/herself but also to our club.
ZWAC must show its appreciation to its coaches that follow and advise our athletes on an individual basis. These couches help the athletes to follow training schedules depending on the specialty of the athlete.
Our club, located at Zurrieq and is blessed with running routes which offer fantastic scenic views. It has been a long standing tradition that every Sunday morning club members meet for the long run, men, women, young and old, all run in a friendly atmosphere.
