MTB Short Course:

25km: The riders head out along the Lagoon Trail, which is a wide track and allows the field to spread out. Great views across the Pallarenda Wetlands, which is home to many bird species and native wildlife. The course then turns onto the Freshwater Trail which brings the riders back through Transition Area from where they continue past the former Quarantine Station and past the Forts along Shelly Cove trail. The course then jumps onto single trail and follows Under the Radar. Enjoying great coastal views onto the Palm Islands along the way. The flowing single trail then turns into more open trails contouring the Many Peaks Range along the Lagoon Trail all the way back to the finish line.
