Race information

The second discipline to be introduced is packrafting - this is only included in the Full course. The Half course teams will miss out on this one. 

Packrafting is a relatively fresh discipline to Australian adventure racing, however, it has been around for a while. The major advantage of packrafts is their ability to give access to the most remote and pristine bodies of water, otherwise inaccessible by kayak.


With 3 months to go until the event day, we are super-pumped to start introducing X-Marathon's 2019 disciplines.

Replacing the ocean swim section initially announced, the SwimRun leg will consist of inlet crossing sections, along with some trekking in-between.

After the epic 2018 Snowy River edition, the AJ team had a puzzle to solve - how to make XM 2019 even better.

Location is certainly one of the most important aspects of the race.


PacKraft is proud to have had a relationship with the AR community over the last 2 years. With experience providing lightweight and durable packrafts for adventure races such as X-Marathon, and GODZone, the team at PacKraft have continued re-designing and refining their packraft range based on feedback from members of the AR community.
