Century City Sports Festival takes place March 1-3

22 February 2013


Century City’s hugely popular annual Sports Festival, which includes a 10km Road Race, takes place from Friday 1 March until Sunday 3 March.

This is the fifth consecutive year that the sports festival, which is aimed at both corporate teams and individual participants,  has been held and it is continuing to grow exponentially.

Chris Blackshaw, CEO of the Century City Property Owners’ Association, the non-profit company responsible for the day to day running of Century City, said this year’s festival promises to be even bigger and better than previous years.

Providing both participatory and spectator sports, the Festival will again be held in and around Central Park and will include fun, food and entertainment for the whole family.

The signature event of the Festival is the 10km Century City Express, which forms part of the Western Province Athletics calendar. Building on the success of previous years, the race is over a flat, fast course and is again expected to attract a large number of runners  attempting to achieve personal best times over the distance.

The race starts at 7am with registration from 5.30am. This year runners can also enter online through

Cash prizes will be awarded to category winners and places with the first 1000 finishers receiving medals.

The 10km race will be followed by a 2,5km Family Fun Run/Walk at 7.15am.

The Festival will also include Corporate Touch Rugby and Five-a-side Soccer tournaments, a Road   Cycling Kermesse, Junior and Senior Canoe and Stand Up Paddler Marathons, a Canoe Polo tournament, a Dragon Boat Regatta as well as Schools Touch Rugby and Under 11 six-a-side Cricket. 

Great spot prizes, medals and lucky draws for participants in all sporting events will be awarded.
