CONGRATULATIONS to ALL 2019 OTWAY ODYSSEY MTB MARATHON COMPETITORS!
2020 DATES: 22-23 FEBRUARY
Congratulations to all participants in the 2019 Otway Odyssey and Great Otway Gravel Grind! The Odyssey is hard; hills, heat, heartache... but you made it! And what an achievement it was - well done to all!
The Otway Odyssey is one of Australia’s most respected off-road cycling events thanks to the quality of the single track, the magnificent wilderness and the electrifying race atmosphere that welcomes any rider – mountain bikers, roadies and gravel grinders.
All your favourite courses will be back for 2020 on 22-23 February, as listed below, as well as the the continuation of the Odyssey Angels initiatives to support and encourage greater female participation at the event.
Iconic races on incredible trails in the MTB mecca of Forrest (VIC) with all races using some of Australia's best single track!

“It’s still my favourite course, in my favourite setting, at the best time of year and I’d highly recommend it to anyone who loves adventure and awesome trails, and the shorter varieties to anybody staring out.”
Peta Mullens, 5-time Otway Odyssey female Champion
“I entered the Odyssey Angels initially as a way of setting a challenge to myself to learn something new. I also wanted to show my kids that anyone (even their mum!) can do anything with a bit of practice and determination. Entering the Odyssey was a way of setting an achievable goal for myself; I’m already planning to do the 50km next year!”
Lissie Doyle, 2018 Odyssey Angels 30km first time racer
