Kapalua, Maui (October 26, 2015) – When you think of Maui, cascading waterfalls, white sand beaches, and breathtaking sunsets come straight to mind. This magical Hawaiian island is also the birthplace of the most notorious off-road triathlon in the world…XTERRA!
From a one-off race held on the most remote island chain in the world XTERRA evolved into an endurance sports lifestyle with worldwide appeal. Over the past 20 years XTERRA transcended its status as ‘just a race’ to become a bona fide way of life for thousands of intrepid triathletes and trail runners across the globe.
A fitting representation of this “XTERRA Tribe” – more than 800 athletes from 43 countries and 43 U.S. states – will gather at Kapalua Resort and on Sunday, November 1, they’ll put their mental and physical toughness up against Mother Nature at the 20th running of XTERRA Worlds.
Follow the race online at www.xterramaui.com, on twitter @xterraoffroad and on Facebook.com/xterraplanet starting at 9am Hawaii time. All the action is being filmed for a one-hour TV special to be broadcast across the U.S., Europe, and on ESPN International starting in mid-January, 2016.
