X-Marathon in East Gippsland, Victoria has trekking, mountain biking and kayaking legs covering approximately 220km with a 48 hour cut off, starting on Friday, 26 January 2018.
Teams of four are invited to explore East Gippsland wilderness in a fully supported, professionally organised expedition style adventure race. The race organisers supply kayaking equipment and full logistics support, making this event perfectly suited for interstate and international teams.
An important update for the 2018 event is the introduction of a half course. After numerous requests the half course was introduced, covering about 40% less distance and having extended cut off times. This will suit either less experienced teams or those who want to experience the event in a less demanding regime.
Half Course: Approx 150km
Full Course: Approx 220km
Trekking, coastering, river and lake paddle (kayaking equipment is supplied), mountain biking, packrafting- all navigation based.
