Pro course - X-Marathon 2011
Pro course is designed for those looking for real challenge.
This will be quite a serious distance for ultimate adventure racers. If you looking forward to your first long adventure race, dreaming about real expedition style events this is a good step to start from. Take a deep breath and feel the sense of adventure which this region offers us.
Expecting leading time will be about 14 hours therefore there is enough time for relatively inexperienced teams to finish the whole course. Distance will be planned with event center is approximately in the middle to give teams opportunity for comfortable refreshment.
Navigation will be more demanding in this course and good altitude gains and drops do not allow you to get bored. Along with traditional kayaking, trekking and mountain biking sections we prepare some adventure tasks to diversify the course.
