ARX XCEL is a community of adventure running athletes aged 13-18 that have the desire to XCEL at a higher level. Our ARX XCEL team members also strive to be Junior Leaders in the Adventure Running Kids programs and summer camps.
ARX XCEL includes 6 additional weeknight hours of ARX navigation training, all 6 2017 spring X-League races, and entry to all Dontgetlost races, priority for ARK summer camp counsellor positions and the opportunity to participate in the travel squad (out-of-province adventure travel that combines national/international racing, training camps and many other adventure activities).
ARX XCEL costs $90 (in addition to the regular ARX program) for the Spring 2017 season.
XCEL is held Thursday nights (March 23-June 8) in 2 locations Hamilton-Burlington-Oakville or Niagara.
In the Hamilton-Burlington-Oakville XCEL there are 2 levels:
Intermediate (for those still perfecting their map and compass skills) 7:00-8:00PM
Advanced (for those with a strong, experienced command of navigation skills looking to practice advanced techniques) 7:00-8:00PM
X-League races will be held at 6:45pm
