AMB 100 Marathon
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.

You can Choose Your Own Challenge with the options to ride 33km, 66km, 100km or 100miles.
In this circuit race the distance challenges are on a 25 - 33 km loop:
There will be a mass start for the first three and we will most likely send the three different racing categories off in 5-10 min intervals to avoid congestions on the first lap.
Start time for the 100miler is 5am to give you that rewarding morning lap and let's you finish with the crowd.
After each lap the times will be recorded at the event centre; the fastest rider in each category wins. Male and female age categories offered include Junior, Elite, Master and SuperMaster.
Riders in the 100km Mates category need to cross the finish line after every lap together (within 3 bike lengths).
