Highland Fling

Race Details:

The Highland Fling is one of Australia’s longest running, most iconic, and we’d like to think most loved mountain bike marathon races; enticing countless thousands of riders since 2005 to take on the challenge, often year after year.

After all these years, we’re planning that 2017 will also be The Final Fling.

We’re excited to announce that The Final Fling will also be a major fundraiser for Save the Children Australia, raising funds to support the superb work they do for children and families in 24 countries around the world.

The Highland Fling. It’s always been more than just a race. More than just a Fling. It’s a journey.

A journey along narrow country lanes, and through lush private farmlands. A journey fording rivers, and plunging into stunning fern gullies. A journey that snakes through some of Australia’s most renowned flowing singletrack, and winds across rocky, technical terrain. A journey that rewards riders for conquering climbs with scenic views, and leaves riders with a euphoric sense of achievement.

With four event distances to choose from: Some Fling (approx. 23km), Half Fling (approx. 60km), Full Fling (approx. 110km) or 100Mile Fling (160km) there’s a journey for everyone.
