The ‘MERIDA Hidden Vale 24HR’ is a Solo, Team Relay and Kids mountain biking event starting at 12pm Saturday and finishing at 12pm Sunday. Riders compete for medals, prizes and bragging rights.
It’s a weekend filled with camaraderie, Easter activities and fun that you’ll never forget! Spectators are welcome, so if you want to come and get involved in the atmosphere and excitement of the MERIDA HV24HR weekend, feel free to either utilise our free day parking area, or book yourself a camp site, and stay the night to cheer on the riders all the way through to lunch time!
Anyone who can ride a bike can do this!
Decide as a team how many laps each person rides – do 1 or a whole bunch. If 24 hours is a little intimidating but you still want to be a part of the action or looking to introduce someone new to the sport we have a 4hr event that could suit you! Take it on Solo or as a Team.
The 3PLUS3 staged at the ‘Epic’ Hidden Vale Adventure Park, running over the 8th and 9th of July 2023 sees two courses both operating over two days – One for the Competitors (Racers) and the other for the Completer’s (Social), switching on the second day offering new challenges and the extra fun factor!
This year we offer a new category which will see the runners hit the trails, offering a 4.5km loop, 3 hours on Saturday and 3 hours again on Sunday. Run Solo or grab two of your mates and complete the 3PLUS3 as a trio team.
Before the main race each day, watch the kids enjoy themselves racing their new friends.

The award-winning 99 Bikes Cycle Epic is a great mountain biking tradition that began in 2002 with a bunch of mates challenging themselves on a 117km epic trail ride. In 2003, the inaugural Australian mountain bike marathon started a new era in the sport.
Over the past 22 years, the EPIC has gone through multiple evolution’s, most recently due to the 2011 floods which destroyed much of the track infrastructure. The track-building team have worked hard to develop extensive tracks of an international standard – creating rides that cater for different ages and skill levels.
