24hr Race | 11th - 12th Aug | Sunny Coast, QLD
A race born in 2011, early iterations of X-Marathon were as a 24 hour race which rapidly earned a reputation for being one of the toughest 24 hour races in the country. This year X-Marathon officially becomes a 48 hour race but remains firmly anchored in the state of Victoria.
Set in the beautiful East Gippsland region, there is plenty on offer to support a 48 hour race at the level demanded by experienced race directors Serge and Maria. Both very experienced and successful adventure racing athletes.

50 hr | 30th - 1st Oct | Myall Coast, NSW
50 hrs of expedition racing awaits in the sensational Myall Coast - 1hr from Newcastle, 2.5hrs from Sydney. This part of the coast is relatively untouched offering great adventure opportunities - lots of water, long stretches of coast and a rugged inland.
Teams will navigate through spaces and places rarely visited. They will encounter challenges as they traverse demanding landscapes in all weather conditions, day and night, day after day.
This is expedition racing so teams need to be self-sufficient. They will pack supply tubs which will be moved around the course and carry equipment, food and first aid supplies with them. The planning and strategy that goes along with this style of racing is a skill within itself.
As the final race of the season, it promises to be an epic race and an epic finish to the A1 Australia Series.Race Over / See Results days, hours, minutes, seconds
