Students and staff from Dubbo College's Clontarf academies, Narromine High School and Wellington High School have completed their annual twelve hour bike challenge in a bid to raise awareness about domestic violence.
The group effort, conducted on Friday at Victoria Park, began at 4am and continued with a rider on the track at all times, until 4pm.
Former Delroy Clontarf academy director Michael Lee thanked the approximately 40 students that participated and announced that the effort had beaten the previous record set in 2017 of 7622 laps.
"There was excellent community support for the ride," Mr Lee said.
This year, the group managed 7653 laps, or 3061km, noting that the adverse weather conditions were the only thing preventing them from reaching a higher total.
While the annual event began as part of a White Ribbon initiative, and the organisation shut it's doors in the ride's fourth year, organisers indicated the ride would continue.
Year 8 student Lockie Skuthorpe and Year 10's Bailey Ross both welcomed the challenge, and were glad to participate for their second year in the event.
"It is great to raise the awareness that domestic violence can be stopped, that we care about it being stopped," Ross said.
