Algonquin Outfitters Muskoka River X 2019 @ Hidden Valley Resort
Sep 13 – Sep 15 all day

The Seventh Season of the Algonquin Outfitters Muskoka River X

 

Muskoka River XRiver X Racing is Rob Horton and Mike Varieur with the ongoing support of Algonquin Outfitters. The flag-ship event is the Muskoka River X; the longest single day expedition paddling race in the world. For the story behind this race watch the mini doc below.

In 2015, the Muskoka River X expanded by adding a traverse of Algonquin Park as an optional expansion to the Classic event, and the Coureur des Bois was born. Continuing to push the envelope of ultra-distance marathon paddling, the boys at River X have added the 24 Hours of River X in 2017. This 24 Hour relay event is a first for North America and challenges teams to go as fast…and as far as possible in 24 Hours. All within a close-course festival style setting.

For 2019 we once again offer something different, let me introduce you to our new race series The Ox on Saturday June 15th 2019.


Muskoka River X
Sprint – B Side
September 14, 2019

Back again for 2019! Starting with the MRX Classic paddlers, Sprint Teams will paddle 58km of the North branch of the Muskoka River starting in Penninsula Lake, through Port Sydney before ending their journey in Bracebridge. For those paddlers who want an MRX experience at a shorter distance, not needing to tackle the upriver-overnight Stages 3 and 4, or wanting to race shorter under-17’ C2 Rec canoes, the MRX Sprint is a great way to start your career in expedition paddle racing. Limited Spots Available.

Muskoka River X
Classic – B Side
September 14-15, 2019

The world’s longest single day expedition paddling race is back for its seventh year with a twist. Teams will paddle the same 133km route, but in the reverse direction. Starting in Penninsula Lake, teams paddle the North branch of the Muskoka River through Port Sydney to Bracebridge. Then they paddle upstream on the South branch of the Muskoka River to Baysville, finishing they race on Penninsula lake. Teams paddle two rivers systems, three lakes and 20 portages for a total of 133km in less than 24 hours. The Classic is completely self-supported. That’s right, no outside assistance, no support teams and no re-supplies. Considered the toughest single day canoe race in the world, the MRX Classic is not your traditional marathon-paddling event.   Challenge your self. Your expedition is waiting ~ The 2019 Muskoka River X Classic. Limited Spots Available.

Muskoka River X
Coureur des Bois
September 13-15, 2019

The Coureur des Bois is back! The River X Crew first hosted this expansion course to the Muskoka River X Classic in 2015 and 2016.  After a 2-year absence and at the request of our Alumni we will again host this epic race. Building on the heritage of the canal expeditions of the 1800’s, the Coureur des Bois will challenge even the most experienced expedition and marathon paddlers. Teams travel along the heritage routes of the Algonquin Peoples and early explorers as they traverse Algonquin Park east to west from Whitney to Oxtongue Lake. Using only the supplies that were carried teams will overnight in a wilderness camping setting at Oxtongue before merging with the Muskoka River X Classic B-Side for a second full day of paddle racing. 223km. 39 portages. 48 hours or less. No resupplies. No support. Navigation with only map and compass. Flat-water. Up-river. Down-river. Marshlands and swamp. A true Canadian back-country expedition race. Are you tough enough to be called a Coureur des Bois? Here’s your chance to find out….
