What is the Central Family Crank?

We’ve got burms and ramps and spirals and this year we are introducing the pump track at St Joseph’s as part of the course. You even get to ride through the main building at Central and down the front steps! It may sound hardcore but anyone can do the course. And each team member can do as many or as few laps as they wish!

Each time a member of your team does a lap they get their team card clipped.

The team with the most laps at the end wins! You can enter as a family, as a school team or even as a bunch of mates. There’ll be prizes for best overall team in each category and loads of crazy spot prizes like best team name. Dress ups are thoroughly encouraged and there will be a prize for best dressed.

"So Amazing!! Best ever family fun."
