What is an XCC?

What you need to know
The 72 hours are designed to remain something of a mystery, so please don’t expect a timetable & 4-star luxuries! However, we have an excellent record of running safe and enjoyable weekends & many men return time after time – so you can trust us! The following information is designed to help you prepare:
The XCC is held in Scotland starting on Wednesday 17th October at 21h00 at a location in the highlands (exact location will be sent to you one week in advance of the XCC). We are assuming most men will be traveling by plane or train, so please aim to arrive Edinburgh airport by 17h00 to catch the coach (you need to book your coach transportation below). Please contact us directly if you plan to drive to the location. The event will be finished by 12h00 on Saturday 20th October & those flying from Edinburgh Airport will be dropped off NO LATER than 15h00.
There is significant physical challenge involved in an XCC – so be prepared – do some training: go for a run (ideally for 20 minutes +), start to walk rather than drive to places & develop your strength through sit-ups and press-ups. You do not need to be superhumanly fit, but the better prepared you are the more likely you are to thrive!
Pay attention to the kit list (below) – you need that stuff & not much more – so pack well. You will all be in teams connected to your campus so it should be easy to share key equipment between you such as compass, tent and rope. We will confirm the teams that you are in & give you the contacts of other team members so you can coordinate who brings what group kit amongst yourselves.
You won’t have time or opportunity to call home – so warn people about this. The emergency number you can give to family or next of kin is: 07534109935 . If you haven’t already, please inform us of any significant dietary requirements, medical issues & bring appropriate medicine.
If you pray, please pray about the weekend. Also ask others to pray for you whilst you are away. Come expectant – you will be challenged & changed – come ready to do business.
This should cover the essentials for now. If you have important questions, please email us before the event at info@4MUK.com
