Launched in 2009, the Act-Belong-Commit Dwellingup 100 has quickly become WA’s largest one day mountain bike race, attracting plenty of newcomers and novices plus some of Australia’s best riders. Once again we are excited to confirm that this event will be a part of the Western Australian Cross Country Marathon State Series (WA XCM State Series).
The event offers 4 different distance options for riders and 3 for runners (in the Mighty Jarrah Trail Run), including a 6km doggie dash for our best friends to join in on the fun.
Riders and runners who take on the challenge get to experience the best single track and fire trail the region has to offer. Those riding in the name-sake 100km Classic travel a course carefully curated by a team of mountain biking legends and course directors, led by the legendary Tony Tucknott.
Why Dwellingup? Aside from it offering some of the best trails in Western Australia, it’s also a charming little town that’s located just over an hour and a quarter south of Perth.
Dwellingupp is an Aboriginal word that means “place nearby water” – an apt description as it is set amongst beautiful Jarrah and Marri forests and water catchment areas. It’s a leisurely day trip by car but if you’re taking part in the event we recommend you stay on for a few days and enjoy all it has to offer.
