Normally there is no camping or access to the Marrinup Old Golf Course. However PMBC have been granted access for this event so you can camp on the Saturday night of the race.

The Track

The planned course is approximately 10 km long. The start will consist of fire road to thin the field before hitting the singletrack.

Consisting of perfect mixture of fire road, double track and single track the perfect course for a 12hour allowing plenty of passing opportunities with varying terrain to suit all riding capabilities.

It is highly recommended that you ride a lap before the race starts.

The course will be fully marked and ready to ride by Midday Saturday 26th November.
