ACT Schools Championships


Canberra Off-Road Cyclists (CORC) is pleased to host the 21st ACT Schools Mountain Bike Championships on Friday 1st September, at Stromlo Forest Park. CORC is Australia’s largest Mountain Bike Club and through its affiliation with AusCycling is committed to the development of mountain biking at all levels. The event started in 1999, and has run every year since except 2002, 2020 and 2021. We are very excited to be back this year!

The event is open to students in years 6-12, from the ACT and interstate. We are expecting about 600 riders, with over half coming from outside the ACT. The event aims to promote having fun on a bike through a team-based relay event.  The race is a 4-hour relay for teams of 3 or 4, in Junior (Yr 6-8), Senior (9-10), College (11-12) by male, female and mixed categories.
