MAP DETAILS
All X League races use specialized and very detailed adventure running maps (usually with a scale of 1:5,000). Please become familiar with the symbols used on the map in this legend.  The start of the race is marked with a purple triangle and the finish is marked with a double black circle. Checkpoints are marked on the map with a purple circle and the difficulty level (green, blue, black diamond,...) will be shown adjacent to the circle. Please be aware of symbols that denote areas that are forbidden to access or cross.
 
**At some X League races the black diamond checkpoint (CP 10) will comprise a pair of checkpoints (10A and 10B) linked together by a line. To get the double black diamond points participants must visit the paired checkpoints in any direction (A to B or B to A) without visiting any other checkpoints in between. We call these a 'double' or a 'dog bone'.
 
REQUIRED GEAR
All participants are required to carry the following gear: watch, whistle, compass, headlamp (fall and winter only), toque (winter only).
 
ENTRY FEES
The X LEAGUE RACES SERIES is a fundraiser for DontGetLost Adventure Running X athletes. The minimum donation to Adventure Running X of $7.50/$5 for Adults/Juniors per race.

The entry fee also includes a 2017 DontGetLost Adventure Running membership to cover race insurance.
 
X LEAGUE STANDINGS

The series consists of four races with a participant's best three race points totals counting towards the X LEAGUE standings (max score is 1500 points). In the event of a tie, ties will be broken by comparing finish positions in each of the races. Race hosts in the winter season (three volunteers per race) get 500 points each for the race they host.
