Following our success in the 2011 X-Alps, we have published a book on the experiences, available from Amazon in Paperback or as an ebook for download on kindle or on the free kindle app.

New! the book is now available as an Audio Book, available from various sources listed here:

Simply go to your local Amazon site and search for "Hanging in There". Or you can find the book on by clicking here.
Complete with detailed maps of each stage and photos the book recounts the adventures from the last race. It reveals the harsh reality of what it takes to compete in this uniquely demanding challenge: the physical and mental hardship, equipment, extreme conditions, strategic thinking and lucky escapes.

Any proceeds from the book sales will go towards funding team GB in the 2013 X-Alps.
You can also view the day by day maps from the book here in interactive format:
