I have seen finishers listed for a SS400K (4000 kms in 60 hours) & a 4000K Gold (4000 kms in 48 hours)
In the IBA official finishers list, I was thinking of doing one on the way to the Parkes Muster from Perth.
However I cannot find it anywhere now in the official list of rides, so my question is does it still exist?

As far as I'm aware they are ... I've never seen anything to say they have cancelled a category in any documentation.
I'm always looking for different rides to do and I think I would have noticed it if they put out an official cancellation/pause on the category.
Plus looking at the classifications the distance still fit's the timings.

If its a local thing i.e OZ then I'm sure TJ or Karl will let you know...
Again I've not seen anything on the forum or on the official list to say they have suspended the category ...

The 4000k/60 is still available ,I did it again in January and had it certified as part of my Silver Mile Eater.

Not cancelled, a great training ride for those that want to test themselves out to see what it is like to be in the saddle for 4000K before having a go at a Coast to Coast
