The Townsville MTB Fes­ti­val re­turns at the end of April, and the main event is the Na­tional Cross­Coun­try Marathon Cham­pi­onships, along­side the North Queens­land Schools Chal­lenge and the Glow Ride. So what’s all that? On Fri­day 27th April the Schools Chal­lenge is for stu­dents from Year 7 to 12 across 3 cat­e­gories, rac­ing in a tra­di­tional Olympic Cross-Coun­try event at Cape Pal­larenda. There is also an Ob­served Tri­als com­po­nent, and the school with the best com­bined rank­ing – wins! On Sun­day the Marathon Na­tional Cham­pi­onships will be con­tested, and the best of the best will be in Townsville to test them­selves on the course at Cape Pal­larenda. With iconic trails like Smed­leys and Un­der the Radar travers­ing the rocky ter­rain, over­look­ing the Coral Sea, riders have a view to Mag­netic Is­land, and the lap-based for­mat means rider sup­port via a feed­zone is a cinch. This isn’t just for elite rac­ers, with age group cat­e­gories giv­ing op­tions for ev­ery­one.
