2016 Snowy River Extreme Race

Random Adventure Gear was proud to be the major sponsor for the 2016 Snowy River Extreme Race. This challenging white water event was held recently on the Snowy River between Munyang Power Station and Island Bend. The race comprises two classes of events catering for expert and intermediate kayakers.

The expert race is 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 intermediate race follows 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. Both events are run as pairs time-trial races, which require competitors to race in groups of two.
