The Snowy River Extreme race is to be held on Sunday, the 30th of September on the section of the Snowy River between Munyang Power Station and Island Bend.
Three classes of event will be held, catering for expert and intermediate kayakers as well as pack rafters and inflatable kayakers. The Random Adventure Gear Expert kayak race will be contested on a 2km Class III-IV stretch of the river, starting just below the “Can Opener” rapid and ending at the “Rafter’s Track”. The Adventure Hub Nepal Intermediate race will be held following the expert race on the 1.7km class III stretch of the river, starting at the “Rafter’s Track” and ending at the flying fox at the gauging station. The PacKraft/Kokopelli inflatable kayak and pack raft race will be also be held on the intermediate course following the intermediate kayak race conclusion. All events will be run as “pairs” time-trial races, which require competitors to race in groups of two. This year we are introducing a Women's division to the racers, this will be open to teams consisting of only female racers and will run provided a minimum of 3 teams enter the category.
