Race information

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.


2019 marks the 8thedition of X-Marathon so we decided to look back into the remarkable history of this event. 

At the start of 2011, Serge and Maria, fresh immigrants from Russia, searched adventure racing calendars in Victoria and found there was a gap in the State’s Adventure Racing schedule, actually, there were almost no races scheduled at all.
