Two words: Start training. Read more here.
Event update 05.09.2020
OK we have gotten some updates: the ACT rules as they are in place now won’t change anytime soon which is the bad news. The good news is that we at least know this now for sure and can work in a single direction as to how we can make it work. We are working hard on an event format that is fun, fair and safe and will let you know more in the coming days.
Event update 04.09.2020
It is 1 month before the event and we still don’t know if it can go ahead. To be honest with you this makes it unlikely to happen in 2020 but we haven’t given up yet. We are working with local authorities to find out if we can come up with a plan but it seems like those guidelines for events haven’t even been written yet. We will keep you up to date and will only decide to cancel the event once we know for sure that it can’t happen in any shape or form this year.
Event update 31.08.2020
With the gathering limit of 100 people which is currently in place in the ACT we will not be able to run this event. We are somewhat hopeful that this rule will be relaxed before the race but if not then we will have to postpone. An announcement from ACT government is expected on Thursday and we will hopefully know more then. Hang in there with us – racing will feel better than ever as soon as we are allowed again.
Join locals and mountain bikers from all over Australia and conquer the Stromlo trails!
Take on this singletrack lap-based marathon on a giant circuit at Stromlo Forest Park – you pick your distance! 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?
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. In 2020 the AMB100 will again be part of the Mitas Terra in the Berra 3-day event.

Race highlights from AMB100 in 2019
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.
