The Century City Sport Festival celebrates its 12th year of existence. The City Cycling Club has been hosting the criterium for the Sports Festival from the first edition and has seen it grow in leaps and bounds. Racing is around a 1.5 kilometre circuit which is secured by the very competent Century City Property Owners security staff. This is an ideal event to test the legs before the WP Road League that commences from the middle of March.
The season opening Century City Criterium takes place on 1 March 2020. The ever popular crit race is hosted by Century City in conjunction with the City Cycling Club. Racing starts at 8h00.
