Curro Podium Athletics is back!

Get ready, sports enthusiasts! The Curro Podium Athletics meeting, the most illustrious high school athletics event in Southern Africa, is back in action. Curro Hazeldean will host this high-octane event on behalf of Curro. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, 27 September 2023 because the Pilditch Stadium in Pretoria will be where all the magic happens.

Curro is doubling down on its commitment to fostering athletic excellence, which follows an inaugural event that surpassed all expectations. The series now extends to two regional showcases. After the north event in September, sports fans can look forward to a second meeting in the south on Saturday, 28 October 2023 at Dal Josaphat Stadium, setting the stage for a grand national finale early next year.

Pierre le Roux, the Executive Head of Curro Hazeldean, couldn't contain his excitement, ‘The Curro Podium Athletics north event is more than just a competition. It's a stage where we nurture future champions in sport and in life. We are fully committed to cultivating young talent and fostering a culture of high achievement.’

The Curro Podium Athletics, which is endorsed by Athletics SA (ASA), aims to spark passion and raise a new generation of sports heroes. The north event is shaping up to be an adrenaline-packed day, featuring the cream of the crop from schools across key regions in South Africa, including the Vaal Triangle, Free State, central Gauteng, KZN, Mpumalanga, Limpopo, North West and the central region of North West.

Athletes won't just compete for bragging rights, however. They'll vie for team and individual titles across a myriad of categories. From the best boys’ and girls’ athletics teams to standout performances in junior and senior track and field events, trophies will find deserving homes. A total of 24 events, ranging from sprints and hurdles to discus and high jump, will make sure every talent is showcased.

The regional champions will earn the right to display their prowess at the Curro Podium national finals slated for February next year.

You can catch all the action live on SuperSport Schools or tune into the Curro Sports YouTube channel. Now more than ever, Curro ensures that the thrills and inspiration of this event reach as many eyes and hearts as possible.
