Safety in Numbers

Mud Run
Saturday, 5th December 2015
Horsley Park, Sydney, NSW

While some get exhilaration from flying solo we all know there is safety in numbers. With piles of mud to drag yourself through, along with plenty of things to climb under, over and through, let’s be honest, you’re gonna need some help out there! Only solution is to get a team together to tackle the Mud Run!

Round up a team from your home, your workplace, your gym or PT Group and take on Mud Run together. What a great opportunity to not only test your physical strength, your teamwork skills but also the involuntary group giggles when one of you just can’t pull themselves out of the mire. Work together to conquer all 30 obstacles and help each other to make it around the 7km course. Pose for a team photo all wearing some of our cool Mud Run merchandise or event better your coordinated team outfit, the crazier the better! Yell out your slogan as you “cheers” that free cold beer at the finish line.

Event Wrap Up

Convict 100
Saturday, 8th August 2015
St Albans, NSW

Once again St Albans has put on a cracker of a day for the 11th running of the iconic Convict 100 Mountain Bike race. This year featured a host of changes with the 100km course being ran in ‘reverse’ and brand new 68km and 44km courses that included everyone’s favourite, the infamous kayak bridge.

The day started cold with thick fog enveloping the start line but the riders soon climbed out from the mist, onto the ridgetops and into the sunshine of a gorgeous August day.

Despite the changes to the course it was a couple of familiar faces that dominated the Male Elite category in the 100km event. Swell Specialized riders Andy Blair & Shaun Lewis came around the final bend together to finish One & Two. A gallant third place went to WA rider Craig Cooke who just slipped off the wheel of the front riders in the final kilometres along the valley floor. In the Female Elite category both Sarah Riley and Briony Mattocks reported having lonely rides but they certainly couldn’t be called slow rides! Sarah ended up with the victory and was ecstatic with the result having been ill during the lead up, Briony came across the line a few minutes behind.

The new 68km event proved a big hit with the riders, the course taking in all the best features of the 100km route including the gruelling rocky section along the Old Great North Rd built by convicts in the late 1800’s which gives the event it’s name. Brad Hamblett dominated the Men’s field, hitting the front early and never relinquishing the lead while Allana Mackertich showed the benefits of experience by posting the quickest time of the day by a woman.

Last but by no means least the less experienced riders or just those keen to avoid too much climbing across the day thrashed it out on the new 44km course. Tate Dogan flew home in a time even quicker than the earliest arrival time expected by the organisers to take the win while the quickest Female was young gun Sally Potter, a tremendous ride from a star of the future.

The Convict 100 will be returning to St Albans on the last weekend of April 2016 so now is the time to book it into your calendar and start planning your training.
