Team OA have been the long terms organisers and founders of this event and have kindly offered the race to the Marsden Racers Club to grow this as part of our growth in the community initiative.  We thank them for this grand gesture and transfering the ownership of this brilliant event over to us!

Proceeds from the events will be going back into the growth of our club and what we can offer within the community.

NEW TO 2020 // RACE DETAILS

All participants will start together. MTB participants will start at 6:30pm and Runners will start at 7pm. The 10k KOTH route will see participants race to the top for the fastest time glory, however, whether you choose to race to the finish or enjoy the views with a more casual saunter, is up to you! For those short on either time, or wanting something a little tamer, the NEW 5K will see participants challenging themselves to the Checkpoint just beyond the farm.

Marshalls from the Marsden Racers will be at the Turn Around points and way points will be on route.  

Each participant will be given a numbered bib to wear that must be handed in on race completion to ensure all participants are back safely.

MTB riders will be asked that they do NOT come back down via Wessenden track for safety reasons. We have beautiful suggested routes for the way back so please contact us for more information.

Dates are confirmed and to your left, so get them in the diary.
