XTERRA Releases 2012 America Tour Schedule

January 11th, 2012

The nation's premier off-road triathlon series features 70 races in 38 states, two U.S. Territories, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands

January 11, 2012 (Honolulu, HI) – XTERRA is back with year 12 of the America Tour, the nation’s premier off-road tri series designed to provide age group athletes with a bona-fide championship to compete for within their geographic region.

At the end of the regular season the top performers in each of eight regions are invited to compete against other athletes their same age – but from different regions – at the national championship in Utah on September 22.

This year there are 70 races in 38 states across the country, as well as the U.S. Territories of Puerto Rico and Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (Saipan).

Of note, XTERRA started “year-round’ scheduling this season, so two points-scoring races for 2012 – XTERRA Big Bear in West Virginia and XTERRA Epic Iron Mountain in Arkansas – actually took place in 2011.  This year, there are five races scheduled in September and October that will count towards the 2013 season.

XTERRA’s regular season ends on the last weekend of August in order to crown regional champions and send invitations to the top scorers in each division nationwide with enough time for them to make travel plans to compete at the XTERRA USA Championship.

XTERRA Puerto Rico opens the 2012 schedule on February 19, followed by the XTERRA Guam Championship on March 10.  While Guam has offered a points series race since 2006, this is their first year as a full-fledged World Tour stop featuring a $15,000 pro prize purse and qualifying slots into the XTERRA World Championship for amateurs.

Combined with the XTERRA Philippines Championship on March 18, and the XTERRA Saipan Championship on March 24 – the three-week XTERRA Asia Tour offers an enticing early season training and racing opportunity in the warm and beautiful South Pacific.

From now until January 31 XTERRA is offering rock-bottom prices on registration rates for its regional championship races, XTERRA Utah, and the trail runs held at regional champ venues.  Entry fees are guaranteed to be the lowest rates racers will see all season.

Entry fees are just $75 for the regional championships ($110 for teams), $50 for Sprint races ($75 for Sprint teams), $40 for 21km trail runs, $30 for 10km races, and $20 for 5km runs.
