  • Description

    Start your 2015 racing season with a bang!

    Rocky Trail is putting on our marathon at Stromlo Forest Park again – it’s not just an A to B race, but the racers come through the event centre a few times on the big circuit.

    The course is tough, no doubt about it, because at Stromlo it’s mostly singletracks and the guys from Rocky Trail are linking up as many sections as possible. That’s why they’re offering different types of challenges:

    The AMB 100 Marathon will feature the longest racing circuit possible at Stromlo Forest Park. Imagine to race every possible track combination at Stromlo – this is a race that gets you to ride the whole Stromlo goodness! The giant race circuit is about 30km long and links together most of the trails at Stromlo.

    The 100km race is 3 laps; there are one and two-lap options as well as the 5 lap 100miler.

    The mass race start is at 8am; the 100milers start at 5am.

    Racing on the Stromlo World Cup trails, word among the endurance racing crowd has it that this event is one of the toughest and rewarding marathon races in Australia.
