Uitenhage High School athletics has played a great role in establishing strong roots within the athletic community, In 2018 we had approximately fifty athletes competing in our Annual Inter Schools meeting between Uitenhage High, John Walton, McCarthy and Gamble Street.

About 20 athletes were named for the Uitenhage District team that participated in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro Championships. We want to take athletics at our school to a higher level and establish an environment that allows our athletes to thrive and compete against the best in the province.

Our team also has two athletes that qualified for the Metro team that competed in the East Cape Championship that was hosted by NMU.

As a team we compete in local races like the Town Lodge Business Night Relay Series and the Medihelp Nelson Mandela Bay Train Race. We are also the proud hosts of the Human Race 5KM Fun Run in partnership with NMU and CANRAD. We are also actively involved in Cross Country and look forward to being able to compete as soon as this pandemic comes to an end.
