The Act Belong Commit Dwellingup 100 returns this September, WA’s largest one-day mountain bike race. Attracting a mix of newcomers and novices as well as some of Australia’s best riders, it’s also a great day out for families wanting to witness the thrills (and occasional spills) of a top-class mountain bike event.

The event was previously been part of the Western Australian Cross-Country Marathon State Series (WA XCM State Series) and even hosted the 2021 AusCycling MTB XCM National Championships.

Running alongside the Dwellingup 100 (literally!) is the Mighty Jarrah Trail Run.

The event offers 4 different distance options for riders and 3 for runners, including a 6km doggie dash for our best friends to join in on the fun.

More than a thousand riders and runners take on the challenge and get to experience the best single-track and fire trails the region has to offer. Those riding in the flagship 100km Boomer course travel a route carefully curated by a team of mountain biking heroes and course directors, led by the legendary Tony Tucknott.

Shire of Murray President Cr David Bolt said “The Dwellingup 100 is one of the highlights of the calendar. Hundreds of mountain bikers and runners spending time in the beautiful and unique natural environment around the township, and hundreds more coming to watch the action.

“Dwellingup is the perfect location for this event; an award-winning small tourist town with some of the best trails in Australia and the infrastructure and services to cater for visitors”.

The combination of a magnificent network of purpose-built trails in Murray Valley, Turner Hill and Marrinup, combined with sections of the Munda Biddi Trail deliver an exhilarating experience for all levels of rider.
