A low key 3 event series for members of the Christchurch Singletrack Club run in a similar way to the Siberia short track series but on a longer and more challenging course and in a multi-lap format. Simply turn up on the night, grab a number, write down your details and be ready to listen to the race briefing. At each event there will be two races, one for the fast guns and one for the sport riders.


The course, which uses C2, Deviation and part of the Crocodile Track, is approx 2.5 km long and is almost all singletrack.

Points of the following values (30, 25, 22, 19, 17, 15, 13, 11, 9, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1) will be allocated to the first 15 places at each race. Points from all 3 events will count towards series placings but there will not be any prizes. It’s all about having some fun racing.  If there is no other suitable event held in the New Year, the winning male and female will earn the club champion trophies.


The races will start at the storm water ponds on C2, adjacent to the Halswell Quarry Park. You can access this by riding to the start of the Crocodile and C2  Track and then following C2 for about 300m to the start, or come in through Findlay’s Picnic Area and head straight on through the main gully for a further 200m to the start area.
