    The 7th Annual Escape from Mt Crawford is back! 

    The annual fundraiser for the Miramar Track is back again, this time as part of a weekend of racing in Miramar

    Event 1: Escape from Mt Crawford (mini) Enduro

    2 classes, with different tracks. Each racer gets 3 timed runs, lowest overall time for 3 completed runs wins. 

    There will be two classes both will use all trails in the reserve. Misdemeanour will not use Solitary. 
    1. Misdemeanour - all runs of a slightly easier nature
    2. Felony -  all runs on more technical tracks 
    Placing in Felony class count towards the Wellington Enduro Series Overall. 

    At the end of each run, there will be an non-timed liaison stage back up  to the start of the course. No shuttles. You can ride, push, crawl or carry to the top. Using a private shuttle, or using any other means to get to the start line at the top of the hill is an instant DSQ.

    No practice runs on the day.

    Event 2: Sufferfest Hill Climb - REQUIRED FOR KING AND QUEEN OF THE MOUNTAIN 

    Your race fee also includes entry to the Sufferfest Hill Climb. Note competing in this event is optional. 

    The Sufferfest Hill Climb is for the truly insane. The race starts at the bottom of Jail Brake and heads all the way up. There will be no re routing around obstacles. 

    NO Practising the Hill Climb before the event. Practising Hill Climbs on Jail Brake before the event is an instant DSQ.

    Event 3: Kids Mini D (for little rippers 12 and under)

    Starting above the dual slalom course, the Mini D course will go down the grassy slope above the duel slalom, through the Duel Slalom (you choose your line), then all the way down Juvie, to finish where it meets with conviction.

    The entire course is Grade 2.

    Enter on the day for the Mini D - $2 only. Registration at the dual slalom course between 12:30 and 1pm. Race starts at 1pm (or after the final starter in the enduro.). 

    King And Queen Of The Hill

    2 events, 1 bike. Sausages optional.

    Compete in the enduro (Felony class) and start the day with the SufferFest hill climb and you will receive points towards the King and Queen Of The Hill Challenge. You don't have to have a sausage from the BBQ, but you must use the same bike for both events.

    Late Entries. 

    There are on the day entries, but you must be registered before 9:30am and bring exact change in cash only. On the day entries are $40.
