excuse my ignorance if you will,


What is the difference between the MTN MArathon events and the MTN XCO events?

marathons are 70-80 km, endurance-events for most. not that fast. big fun, you will be tired afterwards.


xco are short laps (5-6 km) over relatively technical terrain. different number of laps for different categoriews. this is fast and furious and fun. full-speed all the way. very tired afterwards.
