Stromlo Forest Park
Sun 14 February, 2016
The AMB 100 Marathon. A singletrack marathon.
It’s different, because it’s lap-based.
It’s tough, because it’s packed with singletracks.
It’s hard, because you’ll race almost all the trails of Stromlo Forest Park on a giant monster circuit.
All that makes it one of the most demanding mountain bike maratahons on the Aussie MTB endurance calendar. The sweeping climbs, rocky descents and flowying trails at Stromlo, however, also mean that it gets you into a rythm that makes it one of the most fun and rewarding races you’ll ever do.
It features the longest racing circuit possible at the popular MTB park and for the classic marathon challenge participants will have to complete three laps of the ~30km race course, which links together almost all of the trail sections at Stromlo. A mass race start at 8am will also offer a pairs category and one and two lap options. By then the growing number of marathon addicts will have completed almost a third of their race – the five-lap AMB 100 Miler kicks off at 5am with views of a glorious
sunrise over the Capital.
