Record field enters Anaconda Odyssey MTB Marathon

The Anaconda Odyssey Mountain Bike Marathon, formerly called the Otway Odyssey, has sold out with a record field of 1,750 riders. The race consists of three events, all beginning on February 21.

The premier Anaconda Odyssey event will see 1,000 riders tackle 100km of narrow and twisting trails between Apollo Bay and Forrest for a tough day in the saddle. Second to that, 500 riders will take on a more direct 50km "Anaconda Shorty" route between the two townships while the 15km "Anaconda Pioneer" race will give kids the opportunity to get into the action with a fun course around Forrest itself.
