Course will be set up the day before unless noted otherwise. Please contact in advance if you'd like to help setup the course.

XCO courses 4-5km long, aiming to be a total race time of 1h 15 for the winner of each category. This means that Elite riders are expected to do approximately 12.5minute laps. The trails used are generally Intermediate-Advanced, although B-lines are provided where possible. We have supplied some proposed loops however we cannot guarantee that these will be the exact loop used on race day due to the demands of the land owners, park managers and other factors.


The race van, rego and sign on will be located in the Eagle Mezzanine Area. Parking will be in the bowl area. Enter via the main gate off of Mt Barker Road.


We need you. These races happen with the good work done by our volunteers. If you are available to help set up or pack up or assist with anything else please get in touch with our volunteers coordinator via email:
