The Bundanoon Dash

Highland Fling

Saturday 12 November 2016, 4.15pm

As a warm up to the main race on Sunday and as an opportunity to run a short race starting and finishing in the centre of Bundanoon, a short fundraising ‘sprint’ race called The Bundanoon Dash takes place at 4.15pm on Saturday 12 November, the day before the main Highland Fling race. Riders racing in the Fling on Sunday do not have to do the Dash but it is hoped many will. Likewise, anyone wishing to participate in the Dash only is welcome to sign up.

The Dash also incorporates The Battle of The Businesses, a fancy dress fundraising race for local businesses.

The Route

The route of The Bundanoon Dash is for riders to be led under escort (non race conditions) from outside Bundanoon Public School down Constitution Hill to Riverview Road where they will start racing. They will race into the Morton National Park at Gambells Rest and do the loop of the dirt tracks that go via a number of spectacular lookouts back to Gambells Rest. Riders will then race up Gullies Road for a final, tough finish up Constitution Hill to Finish near the school. The total distance is some 6km.


All entry fee monies from the Dash go into the community fundraising pot.
