The 2023 AusCycling MTB Enduro National Championships will be returning to Red Hill, Victoria on 12-15 October.

This location offers a variety of hand-cut trails, with plenty of natural tree root and rock gardens scattered throughout the network to bring a smile to your face as you descend. Great draining sandy soil, combined with just under 310m of elevation, plenty of technical descents and steep liaison climbs will keep riders honest. The Red Hill region is located on the slopes of Arthurs Seat, on the Mornington Peninsula approximately 80km from the centre of Melbourne.

As we return to Red Hill in 2023, AusCycling has listened to your feedback and will be implementing a number of changes that include: 

  • Streamlined entry process 
  • More resources on course to support participants 
  • Course and timing upgrades that will allow a more enjoyable experience while challenging your competitors



From Monday 3 July all remaining entries will be available with no category limitations (up to overall capacity for each day). Participants who are on the waitlist prior to Monday 3 July will be added to the entry list.
