This event is run entirely by volunteers, and entries will not open until the organiser is satisfied that we have enough helpers. As a general rule, if you’ve done more than five events without giving up the chance to compete and volunteering, it’s time to put up your hand. Or perhaps you have some family members who can help out, while you compete? This table shows the roles we need help with and the kind volunteers who have already put up their hands. If you can help out, or have family members who can, please email email@example.com. You could earn a Volunteer Reward, and some roles will still allow you to compete in the event.

Riders looking for a challenge under some big open skies will enjoy the wide open farmlands around Killarney, near Warwick on the Darling Downs. Whilst the course avoids the more mountainous areas of the dividing range, there are still one of two ‘high points’ climbs to attack! In-fact, the topography and surfaces will be eminently suited to gravel bikes with a mixture of sealed roads, unsealed roads and rough tracks. There’ll be some big points to chase and some big distances to cover for attempting to clear the course. Pass by fields of spuds and grains, spot agricultural machine from yesteryear and well as some futuristic models and all manner of domesticated and wild critters along the way.
We’ll be setting up the event centre at the Killarney showgrounds, where you can camp and enjoy dinner and breakfast (pre-bookings only). Note that it’s a condition of entry that you’re double vaccinated to comply with showgrounds policy. The dinner on Saturday night will include Soup (2 options, 1 x vegetarian), Main (Beef & Chicken) with rice/bread roll, Vegetarian option (1 choice), Dessert with custard/Baked mini cheesecakes, Tea & Coffee. The optional breakfast is Bacon & Egg Burgers (vegetarian burger), Tea & Coffee and juice. Most menu items are G.F.
You can hire a mapboard as you enter and MIRY mapboards will be available for purchase on the day.
Entries are now open, so assemble your team!
Killarney Sprints MTB Orienteering
Sunday 18th September
After the long distance of Saturday why not try a sprint length event around the quiet streets of Killarney. The MTBO Club will have 3 line courses and a scatter course set-up to try your urban bike nav. You can ride solo, with your cyclegaine team or in a family group. Winning time will be around 25-30min, so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the Killarney sights after that.
Here are a few photos to whet your appetite:
