Summer Sprints 2020

Round 3 of the RATS Summer Sprints, due to be held on Sunday, 15 March, has been cancelled.

Redlands City Council has made the difficult decision to close the Redlands Track Park tracks due to the large amount of rain received by the area on Monday and Tuesday. All paid participants will receive a full refund.

The RATS Summer Sprints return in 2020 as a Tier 3 National Cup event across three different tracks.

Round 1 at Karingal Scout Camp is on old school hand-built trails, round 2 at Underwood Park is on flowy, machine-made trails, and round 3 we return to Redlands Track Park on hand-built trails with flat gravelly corners.
