XCO courses 4-5km long, aiming to be a total race time of 1h 15 for the winner of each category. This means that A graders are expected to do approximately 12.5minute laps, whereas D graders are expected to be over 20 minutes. The trails used are generally Intermediate-Advanced, although B-lines are provided. We have supplied some proposed loops however we cannot guarantee that these will be the exact loop used on race day due to the demands of the park managers.
