XTERRA Ushers In 20th Year

From a one-off race held on the most remote island chain in the world XTERRA has 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.

Honolulu, HI (January 12, 2015) – From a one-off race held on the most remote island chain in the world XTERRA has 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.

In 2015 revelers of the “Live More’ spirit will have more opportunity than ever before to pursue their passion.

Download the tentative 2015 XTERRA America Tour off-road triathlon schedule featuring more than 65 races nationwide.  The nature of each location – from the people to the weather to the terrain – is totally unique.  Some races are at sea level, some at altitude – there are swims in lakes, rivers, and oceans – races in big cities and small towns, in the mountains and the desert.  The one constant in XTERRA is that Mother Nature is always your toughest competitor.

Beyond the U.S. the XTERRA World Tour provides athletes with a chance to race in some of the most diverse, spectacular, and challenging natural environments on the planet – from tropical jungles to snow-covered alps.

For those looking to get to Maui and celebrate the historic 20th running of the XTERRA World Championship there are an unprecedented number of qualifying races this year.
