The North Queensland Championships continue to be the Premier Regional Athletics Championships in Australia. In 2022, we had over 730 athletes competing for athletes of all ages and abilities, the biggest it has ever been. Athletes will be travelling from all areas of Queensland – Gold Coast to the Cape and as far west as Mount Isa, including a large number from one of the most remote clubs in Australia – Normanton Athletics. A large number of athletes are also travelling from a range of states and territories across Australia and the Oceania Region.
