Summer XC starting 6th January

AMBC Summer XC Round 1- O’Halloran Hill Twilight Race, 6th January

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas break, now its time to start thinking about working off that pudding, testing out the new bling or better yet putting that new bike through its paces!! Summer XCO is back! Join us on Saturday the 6th of January for the first round of the AMBC Summer Cross Country Series, at the awesome O’Halloran Hill Trails! Fun for all!

If you’ve raced with us before then the summer race will be the same but shorter. If you haven’t then come and have a go, the shorter format is ideal for first timers and we still have plenty of categories to choose from to suit your ability. Because of the much shorter format (racing for approx. 1hr), THERE WILL BE NO TOILETS AT THE EVENT. Please plan ahead.

(Registration will close at 5pm on Friday 5th January)

Self seeded categories from A through D grade. Expect a lap to be around 3km in length with A grade times taking 10-12mins.
A- 5 laps
B- 4 laps
C- 3 laps
D- 2 laps

This is a twilight race starting in the late afternoon and finishing before sunset.  You won’t require any lights to race.
5:00pm rego opens
6:00pm race start
7:30pm event finish

Entry to O’Halloran Hill race location is off Majors Rd, opposite the fire station (ish): Information about the location can be found in our trails index and via an interactive trailforks map .

The race course, race HQ and parking locations will be announced closer to the date. A proposed course map will be posted on our facebook event and this post will be updated so remember to check back a day or two before the race.

Course will be set up earlier that afternoon. If anyone can help please get in touch with the club at  . We still need a couple volunteers to help pack up the course. It’s a short lap and won’t take long.

We need you. These races happen with the good work done by our vollies. If you are available to help set up or pack up or assist with anything else at any of our races please email Aurelia Strozik  (
