From 10.00 pm on Friday night, this event will run all night and through the following day.

Starting at Wulkuraka Station in Ipswich, the 300 km course is all off-road and traffic free, just riding through South East Queensland’s big country. The turnaround point is at the trail head in Yarraman and the Finish is back in Fernvale.

This event will be the first BVRT Ultra Extreme 300 km bike race on the fully completed rail trail, including the great new section from Toogoolawah to Moore. 

Just completing the course is a major achievement, but if you can get anywhere under 20 hours, you're a super human.

This is gravel racing for a total distance of 300 km with a net height gain of 375 metres on a fairly rough track, with a number of challenges along the way.

RFID event timing will be provided by Hayden Brooks of TimingResults.

First prize:

Second prize: A customised BVRT E2E cycling shirt designed by Jakazni with your name on it.
Third prize: Lunch for two at Nash Cafe in Esk (Voucher)

Additional award categories
Fastest rider under 25 (male and female)
Best sportsperson award (participant nominated)
Youngest cyclist to complete the course in under 20-hours
Oldest cyclist to complete the course in under 20-hours
Last person to complete the course in under 24-hours

Equal prizes for men and women.
