New Zealand records in athletics

The following are the national records in athletics in New Zealand maintained by New Zealand's national athletics federation: Athletics New Zealand (ANZ).

For unknown reasons ANZ does not recognise a multitude of best marks set by New Zealand athletes (especially indoor events). Nevertheless IAAF officially ratified these marks.
