This is how WE do a marathon.
This is Australia’s single trail marathon.
COVID update 31.08.2021
It is incredibly hard to forecast when we will be allowed to race again. We believe that events may not return until late November or early December. With a bit of luck a return may be happening sooner but we are doubtful that it will be before late October. Once we have more certainty we will reshuffle all our event dates and give you all the transfer/refund options.
We can’t wait to see you at the various start lines again.

The AMB100 Marathon has its home at Stromlo Forest Park – it’s an awesome place to RIDE – discover with us how much fun it is to RACE!
Take on this marathon on giant circuit at Stromlo Forest Park – you pick your distance! Do one cheeky lap, two to catch the racing bug or three for a classic marathon… 5am start and sunrise lap for the 100-miler anyone?
Join locals and mountain bikers from all over Australia and conquer the Stromlo trails!
The AMB100 is loaded with Stromlo’s so iconic single trails and every year our race track is updated to be sure to link up as many of the most popular ones. Generally between 22-27km long, the race track always surprises with Stromlo’s hidden gems, which will make it a challenging and unforgettable experience (even for the locals!). It’s one of those races that will make you come back for more every year!
This is your unique annual chance to race Rocky Trail’s ‘giant monster circuit’ at Stromlo!
Spring racing in the Capital! The sweeping climbs, rocky descents and flowying trails at Stromlo mean that it gets you into a rythm that makes it one of the most fun and rewarding races you’ll ever do.

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.
