“One of the toughest marathon races” – AMB Editor says as online registration goes LIVE

We are excited to welcome the Australian Mountain Bike Magazine as major sponsor of the AMB 100 Marathon in 2014!

Because of its high proportion of singletrack and the rocky and rough terrain, word among the endurance racing crowd has it that this event is probably one of the hardest marathon races around.

Experienced marathon racer and AMB’s new editor, Mike Blewitt, who raced the event with Rocky Trail this year, said,

“Racing at Stromlo is an immense challenge, and as patrons of the AMB 100 Marathon, we are excited to present this event for Australian Mountain Bikers. The trails and terrain at Stromlo always determine a deserving winner, and with the variety of challenges on offer from a one lap race to the 100 miler, and with paired racing options, there is something for everyone out there. I’ve raced on every continent except the big frozen one, but the trails and racing I have experienced at Mt Stromlo have always left me both exhausted and exhilarated. This will be one of the toughest races on the Australian calendar, yet the variety of events and location means it is accessible to many.”

The giant race circuit will be about 33-35km long and link together many of the trail sections at Stromlo Forest Park. Racing challenges include 1-5 loops.

Online registration is LIVE now.
