If you want a piece of the action and are eager to experience the fun of off-road racing – the XTERRA Short Course in beautiful Dunsborough is the race for you! The XTERRA Short Course is a shorter, more accessible event compared to the full course on Sunday. We welcome athletes of all abilities – from whippets who race the short and fast like a race car, through to novices and juniors who are new to off-road racing and want an easier alternative.

Swim Course
A beautiful clear water swim that remains close to shore.

We will commence with 2 wave starts with athletes voluntarily allocating themselves to either the ‘racers’ wave starting at 9:30am or the ‘recreational’ wave starting at 9:35am.

Each wave start will commence in waist deep water at the end of the boat ramp for a superb swim through the crystal clear water of Geographe Bay. Completing a 750m single loop swim with a series of right turns, swimmers remain within 200m of the coastline at all times (making for great viewing) whilst swimming over a sandy bottom kept alive with the fluttering of small fish in the shallows.

Exit the water up the boat ramp and enter Transition #1 in the car park just 30m from the water’s edge.

Bike Course
Moderately technical MTB course along extensive single track through the bushland

Short course riders will complete a fun mountain bike ride through the Dunsborough Country Club grounds as a single loop that takes in some of the most fun trails in the area.

The MTB course will include heaps of single track but also plenty of over-taking opportunities to allow faster riders through. This course will be technically challenging in spots but there are always easier “B” lines to take if you are not keen on taking the faster and more technical “A” lines. The course has technical aspects and we recommend some previous MTB experience!

Run Course
Scenic trail run along the coastal trails.

Exit the transition area (TA) and run through the Country Club on flowing MTB style single track before joining the wider coastal trail that parallels the coast to just north of Curtis Bay. Turn right and commence the homeward leg with a short section of rock and sand. Soon enough you re-join the coastal path, then leave the coast and commence a final climb back to the Country Club and a fast single track descent to the finish chute. Well done!
