The final weekend of the Kambarang Carnival saw the Australian Long Distance and Australian Sprint Championship competitions play out.

However, winning times were mostly as expected (although a little on the longer side), and there were not many MPs / DNFs, so overall the competition went smoothly.

New start times for Saturday

Due to the forecast of warm to hot weather on Saturday 7th October, the decision has been made to move all start times forward by an hour for the Australian Long Championships. The new start times have been published on Eventor and are simply your original start time minus one hour.
