JUNIOR MTB 10km

For the 13-18 year olds the Junior MTB is one loop of the awesome 10km Quest Farm course.  There are still river crossings, single tracks, huge hills that will leave you breathless and crazy downhills that will have you grinning like a split turnip – just not as many!

  • Entry fee is $25
  • Prizes will be awarded from 1st to 3rd place for both Male and Female

  • Junior Entry fee $40 per team
  • Rider prizes will be awarded for 1st to 3rd place for Male, Female, Mixed and Junior teams

10km CROSS COUNTRY RUN

New to the event this year we have added a 10km cross country run.  After last year everyone was commenting on how beautiful the scenery is, and since it is on private land was there any chance that we could do a run for people who aren’t into biking?

Props to Quest Farm, who has agreed to share a bit more of their slice of paradise so we could add a 10km run.  The course is different to the MTB course, but still has the same mix of stunning scenery and challenge you would expect from Winter Quest.

  • Adult entrants must be aged 18 years or older, entry fee $60
  • Junior entrants must be aged 13-18 years, entry fee $15
  • Prizes will be awarded from 1st to 3rd place in each division, for both Male and Female

KIDS CHALLENGES

The Kids Challenges are designed as an adventurous intro to mountain biking and cross country running for primary school aged children.   There are a variety of options, and multiple entries are encouraged.  Go on – dare your kids to challenge themselves!

Entries are open to children in school years one to six.  Parents are welcome and encouraged to ride or run with their child at no charge.  Prizes are awarded to the fastest boy and fastest girl in every school year.

  • Kids challenges entries are on the day
