The fourth Highland Fling Mountain Bike Marathon, which again will double as the Australian Marathon Championships, will take place in Bundanoon in the Southern Highlands of NSW on November 8-9. The event will include the Full Fling (approximately 110km), Half Fling (55km) and 100 Mile Fling (160km). New this year will be The Casual Fling, a 16km outing for those people keen to ride but not so sure of their ability to go the longer distances.
Last year's race was won by Shaun Lewis and Rowena Fry. Entries for this year's event, which have sold out every year, are limited to 1300 riders and registration will open on June 23. For more information or to register, visit www.wildhorizons.com.au.
