The XTERRA World Championship in Hawaii on Sunday, 27 October 2019 is the world's premier off-road triathlon.
The triathlon combines a 1.5-kilometer (1-mile) swim that starts at D.T. Fleming Beach in front of the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, a 32-kilometer (20-miles) mountain bike that climbs 3,500 feet up and down the lower slopes of the West Maui Mountains, and a 10.5-kilometer (6.5-miles) trail run that traverses forest trails, and beach sand.
The XTERRA World Championship race is the last in a series of more than 100 off-road triathlon races held in 27 countries and 22 US States. The concept is to provide a bona-fide world championship for amateur and elite off-road triathletes. For pros there is $100,000 in prize money at stake.
Note that "At Large" entries are full; there are 38 races in 27 countries where amateurs can earn a qualifying spot. Refer to the event website for qualifying races.
