The Mike Carney Toyota Paluma Push was established in 2002 and is held on 12th July 2025. It is a Cross Country Marathon Mountain Bike race from the rainforest trails of Paluma Village  to the open outback cattle country in Hidden Valley (Far North Queensland).

Choose from 4 distances and one E-Bike category. The race offers a 42km, 53km, 53km E-Bike, 70km and 100km course.

Starting on Friday afternoon, we will camp out at the Hidden Valley Cricket Oval and then meet at the Start line in Paluma on Saturday morning, 12th July. The Event HQ and finish line are at the Hidden Valley Cricket Oval, where we will hold the After Party. Once you have done the hard yards on the course, join us for live music, food truck fiesta, bon fire and beers.


The Mike Carney Toyota Paluma Push 2025 is on 12th July.

Registrations open on 1st August 2024. Get in quick to score an early bird ticket and make sure you don't miss out on an entry. We look forward to seeing you all back on the trails in 2025.
