X Lakes (Winter) – 13 July 2013


X Lakes Winter, same as Summer, only Cooler!

After the huge success and fun of the X Lakes Summer, we are proud to announce the inaugeral X Lakes Winter.

We have incorporated most of the comments and suggestions that we received from the X Lakes Summer entrants and believe the result will speak for itself.

X Lakes Winter will start with a paddling section and because the 1st cycling section falls away, both the remaining cycle sections are a bit longer to provide the support teams to make their way between transition points with ease. But all the details of the route etc can be read on the webpage.

The race will take part on the 13th of July 2013.  Please check out the website for more information and the route description in detail.
