The race is on for Range8, so take the Challenge on Sunday 20 August 2017 - taking in the best single track in Jubilee Park.

Only $35 flat rate per rider Entry Fee.  Junior teams only $20 per rider.

CATEGORIES

The Range8 course is set to take in the best of Jubilee’s single track and will be a challenging ride especially over 8 hours. With an estimated 3,500m of elevation for the top competitors, the Range8 is an individual challenge and a serious endurance event.  While we are expecting a number of solo competitors we have included a number of team categories to whet your appetite. If the solo challenge is not for you, than why not get a team together and share the load. Or if you want to take it a little easier - 4hr Challenge is set over a shorter course and only four hours.
