The Course

Course Maps, GPX, and Details

The course is split into three loops that start and end at Kimberley Alpine Resort. The trails and amazing, and the climbs are daunting. There isn't a single bit of pavement on the course, and you get many kilometres of technical single track. 54k solos have 12 hours to finish. 108k solos and teams have 24 hours and repeat the same loop. Don't like loop courses? Wait until you see these trails before you say that! Each leg is run counter-clockwise.

GOAT – Leg 1+4

Distance: 16.1km

Gain/Loss: 886m/886m

Max Elev: 1,912m

GOAT starts off with wide open trails that let racers jockey for position, then you're suddenly on single track and starting to climb into some of the gnarliest terrain on the back of North Star Hill. You summit North Star and begin a screaming, technical descent back to the resort.

TOAD takes you through lush valleys, wild rockslide gullies, and dark forest. This leg is all up and down, all the time, with some of the twistiest trails and best views in the area.

Leg 2 Elevation


BEAR – Leg 3+6

Distance: 19.4km

Gain/Loss: 670m/670m

BEAR takes you almost all of the way to St. Mary's River and the lowest point on the course. That means you also get to climb all the way back up! You get to climb over the side of Myrtle Mountain and enjoy some of the most open vistas in almost savannah-like terrain.
