More "Fun Factor" for the 2012 Act Belong Commit Dwellingup 100.

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

As you may have already heard we have been forced to make some serious changes to the course layout for the 2012 Act Belong Commit Dwellingup 40 and 100 km events.

These changes are going to add a serious amount more "Fun Factor" to the event.

The course is now essentially a two lap course of the Northern loop. The first lap is 40 kms long taking in "Hells Gate" and Marrinup, the second lap is 60 kms long taking in Turner Hill, Hells gate and Marrinup again.

There are numerous advantages to the new course lay out:

• Nowhere near as hilly as the old 40 km loop.
