The Sanctuary Summer Series is run by women, for women (with the help of a few good men). The twilight criterium events are designed to be welcoming, safe, fun, affordable and social. Each event includes opportunities for mentoring and racing, as well as family-friendly activities.
The Sanctuary Summer Series is a team event - three criteriums (crits), teams of three, any combination of grades.
Each team needs to register for the series. There is no cost to register.
Please include the team member names and their approximate grading (A/B/C/D) in the Entry Remarks to help with planning.
Team kit is preferred but not required, however riders from any given team are requested to wear similar colours (e.g. black jerseys).
Registered teams will be given early access to event entry. Each team member will need to enter each event.
Once the early access period has expired, entries will go public. There is a wait list if we hit capacity (60 riders).
|Criteriums (mentoring session included)||$10 per event|
|Mentoring session only||$10 per event|
|Creche (bookings required)||$0|
One of the team can't make one of the events?
The team can use a substitute rider for that event.

Graded handicap criteriums for women, with two grades on the circuit at once. The faster grade will start after a suitable time gap, with the aim of catching the slower grade.
Grades are limited to 15 riders per grade.
This is a team event, with riders in teams of three. Team members can enter any grade. Participation points for all three team members will go towards the overall total, with additional points awarded to the top 5 finishers in each criterium. Points will also be awarded to teams that supply volunteers (team members or supporters) to help run the event.
