Event notes
2019 Echuca Mini Marathon (and 2019 Victorian Canoe Marathon WS7), from Barmah to Echuca.


Each paddler in the crew or team must register.

This event covers part of Day 3 of the Murray Marathon/Massive Murray Paddle course.

There are three distance options: full distance (50 km), relay (50 km), or short distance (Old MMP Checkpoint D to Echuca, 20 km). The relay has three legs (Barmah to Old MMP Checkpoint C - 12 km; C to D - 18 km; and D to Echuca - 20 km). Please note the MMP changed the checkpoint naming last year so on the new maps the old checkpoint D is now C, and old C is now B.

Full distance and relay check-in at Jack Edwards Park, Barmah from 6:00 am. Briefing 6:45 am. Crews will start at 7:00, 7:30 or 8:00 am depending upon craft type/speed. Possible 6:30 am start for slower craft.
Short course check-in at Checkpoint D: 9:30 to 10:00 am sharp. Briefing 10:15 am. Start: 10:30 am

The intention is to have all paddlers finishing reasonably close together (between ~11:30 and 12:30 pm) and and off the water by 12:30 pm to simplify on-water safety near Echuca (given the presence of power boats and jet skis). Race presentations will be conducted at 1:00 pm at Victoria Park boat ramp, Echuca

Safety requirements

Wearing of an approved PFD (personal flotation device) is mandatory for this event. Paddlers will also need a mobile phone in a waterproof pouch, a pea-less whistle attached to their PFD, an emergency blanket and a dry bag with a change of warm clothes. The mobile phone needs to have the Australian Government “Emergency Plus” app loaded: https://emergencyapp.triplezero.gov.au/

Public toilets are available at the Start (Jack Edwards Park, Barmah) and Finish (Victoria Park, Echuca). Please note there will be no toilets at Checkpoint C and Checkpoint D.
