AARHUS IS HOSTING THE WC CROSS 2019 - AND YOU CAN BE A PART OF IT

 

THE SPRINT

COMPARE YOURSELF DIRECTLY TO THE BEST CROSS COUNTRY RUNNERS IN THE WORLD

WHAT: The chance to go full speed on the original WXC course – including the steep 100 meters atop the Moesgaard Museum, before you sprint to the finish line.

HOW FAST: Real fast! The world’s best runners do the 2 kilometer course in less than 6 minutes, so start practicing now.

WHO: The Sprint is the opportunity of a lifetime, for all runners who wants to get an up close and personal feel of a true world championship experience. Runners of all ages are invited to a personal attempt at conquering the WXC course.

“It’s about leaving nothing in the tank. Crossing the WXC finish line should equal total exhaustion, leaving no doubt that you gave it your all!”

Thomas Glud, WXC race official

 

THE RELAY

GET THE BAND BACK TOGETHER AND EMBARK ON A UNIQUE 4 X 2 KM RELAY OF A LIFETIME!

WHAT: In The Relay you have two options; either you share the 2 km laps with teammates, or you go solo for all four laps! The elite WXC runners do a lap in about 6 minutes equating a relay time of 24 minutes, so get ready for some steep competition.

WHY: Ever since The Relay made it on to the WXC programme, with its amazing team spirit and unbelievable speed, it has been a spectacular discipline at the WXC and a fan favorite. For the first time ever, YOU, have the opportunity to take center stage in WXC’s attractive and hair-raising thriller.

WHO: Pick your friends that you don’t get to see enough. Pick whoever you know will want to take part in the party of a lifetime or teammates that are build for speed. Or how about inviting the family to a different running experience they are likely to never forget.

”Maybe your friends can do a little of everything running wise, or maybe you already scouted the ones with the most XC skills. Only you know, who should make your all-star team in order for you to compete and have a good time”

Thomas Glud, WXC race official

 

THE SEARCH

WANT TO RACE WITH THE BEST OF THE BEST? HERE'S YOUR CHANCE

The Search for the World’s toughest runner is on! The World Cross Country Champion is the most versatile runner on the planet. The next crowning will take place in Aarhus.

Everything is included in this unique experience:

  •     You start in the elite’s race
  •     Access to the same start and finish area as the elite
  •     “The Search” Call room before start
  •     Opportunity to measure yourself against the top runners from nations all over the World


Before toeing the startline, please read the fine print:

  •     Female athletes need to own an official 10 km racetime below 37 min. within 12 months of WXC raceday.
  •     Male athletes need to own an official 10 km racetime below 33 min. within 12 months of WXC raceday.
  •     Race officials will show no mercy in managing this prestigious WXC race. If you are about to get lapped, you will be pulled from the race. In other words, you will be pushed to the limit. Your 10 km racetime indicates that you can keep up, now it’s up to you to prove it.

 

THE TOUGHEST

THE UNDISPUTED CHAMPIONS OF CROSS COUNTRY ARE LOOKING FOR CHALLENGERS ON AN INSANE WXC AND TRAIL COURSE, MIXING THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS!

WHAT: The classic recipe for cross country has been spiced up with just the right amount of slick grass, mud, challenge zones, forest single tracks, gravel roads and water passages in a course set to bring you the best of both cross and trail. Served to you in the middle of a giant WXC party!

HOW: No matter your relation to trail, cross or running in general, The Toughest is guaranteed to bring you the ultimate running experience. Expect a course never seen before in Denmark, whether you choose 4, 8 or 12 km as your preferred distance.

WHO: The Toughest is created to give you three different opportunities to tackle the WXC course:

  •     4 km: 1 x WXC course and 2 km trail = 4 km total
  •     8 km: 2 x WXC course and 4 km trail = 8 km total
  •     12 km: 3 x WXC course and 6 km trail = 12 km total


It’s an open invitation, so listen to your legs just before the start and choose your distance. No matter your choice, we guarantee the best cross country mixed with the best trail.
