This is the third year of Inter School MTB Event in the Northern Territory run by St Philip's College. This is second part of a 2 race series.
It will be located at the Telegraph Station on 21 May between 9am and 12:00pm. (Race Briefing from 8.45am, please note that we would ideally have these races may be finished earlier than advertised time)
All competitors will be invited to do a practice lap before the event commences so that they are aware of the course and where it goes. If you and your team are planning on doing this please arrive at 7.30am and follow marked course or ride track before with school group.
The Race will vary in length depending on your age but a single lap is 5.25kms in length. It will leave from the grass at the TGS and head north until turning right at the cattle grid/ fence travelling through the river (this is a fast and bumpy part of the course so be careful). Another right turn after crossing the river and heading south along the Wallaby Trail to a marked turn Left onto Skyline (No official sign here) then Right onto Perentie and back via 4 posts where you will turn back towards the TGS taking in the 'B' line of the rock garden and then riding the Todd River sandy crossing to the finish at TGS.
Please note the track for the 21 May will be slightly different from the course on the 30 April.
