It is a "winner take all" race, with one of the richest pro purses in multisport at $105,000, and it is awarded solely on the basis of the Maui performance. Since this race is a stand-alone event, it offers a unique opportunity to competitors as even those who have had a less than stellar season are given an opportunity to redeem themselves and earn the coveted title of XTERRA World Champion.
