48hr Race | 25th – 28th Jan | East Gippsland, Vic
X-Marathon will kick off the 2018 Series, set amongst the stunning landscapes of East Gippsland. There is little doubt race directors Serge and Maria will once again deliver epic and memorable legs in this adventure racing paradise.
2018 offers a half course option that still retains all the elements of adventure racing but in a shorter format, perfect for those new to the sport or still recovering from the Xmas festivities! A tough race to start the season, but it will no doubt remove the cobwebs and shape the leader board for what promises to be another incredible A1 Australia Series......View Race
24hr Race | 5th – 6th May | Lake Samsonvale, SE Qld
An exciting new Rogaine format race joins the 2018 Calendar, with the hugely successful Rogue Raid event. Teams compete by collecting as many checkpoints as possible over a 24hr period (that’s right, all teams remain on the course for 24hrs).
Traditional disciplines of trekking, mountain biking, kayaking and navigation remain, however each stage is its own small Rogaine where competitors collect as many or as few checkpoints as they wish, making this event achievable by all levels of athlete. There is even a short 6hr event for first timers to get a taste of the action.View Race
