The 15th Century City Sports Festival is almost here!

Century City’s biggest event of the year is around the corner! The entire precinct including parks, roads and canals will be abuzz with all kinds of sporting codes from Friday, 1 March to Sunday, 3 March 2024.  

The busy schedule starts on Friday evening with Touch Rugby in Central Park, 5-a-side Football and Netball at Curro, while the first Dragonboat Open kicks off in Grand Central.

On Saturday the 2nd, it’s the runners’ big day with the Century City Express with Discovery Vitality and 5km Fun Run at 7:00, drawing the most participants and largest crowd of the weekend.

A calendar favourite, runners can look forward to a diverse course which meanders through the precinct from just beyond Intaka Island, past the kilometres of canals, through Ratanga Park, with the finish in Central Park.  Besides the 10km and 5km, social walkers are welcome, but will be requested to start at the back and keep to the side of the road.

Other events on Saturday include 5-a-side Football at Curro, Canoe Polo on the large water body at Ratanga Park, Canoe Juniors and Dragonboat racing on Halfmoon Bay and a new sporting code, Volleyball, will take place on Central Park.

The Sports Festival continues on Sunday the 3rd, with it being a big cycling day with the Cycle2Ride Mountain biking taking place on the e-parking area near Canal Walk and the exciting Western Province Cycling Criterium starting from Link Road through the precinct.  A new sporting code, Stand Up Paddling (SUP) will be taking place in Halfmoon Bay from mid-day.  An Action Padel tournament and 5-a-side soccer at Fives Futbol concludes the ball games for this exhilarating weekend. 

Even spectators will get a good day of outdoor exercise following the progress of all the various athletes!
