XTERRA America Tour Overview
The race is on to win a coveted World Championship slot by earning a Regional Championship. Pursuit of a National and even a Pan American Champion title is also on the line. Our nationwide network of races is the key.
The more you race, the more points you collect and the more likely you are to win a Regional Championship. We will count your best four finishes – including two in region. To be considered for a Regional Championship, you must do one race in region. All Regional Champions in every XTERRA region will qualify for Maui.
And the grand finale of the U.S. season is the Pan American Championship in Ogden, Utah. All are welcome to race, and in addition to Americans, we expect to welcome competitors from South America, Canada, Central America and the Caribbean. The fastest athletes in Utah will earn the title of Pan American Champion and the fastest Americans earn the title of U.S. Champion.

For Amateurs: The XTERRA America Tour is designed to provide age group athletes (amateurs) 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 honored as Regional Champions, will qualify to race at XTERRA Worlds in Maui and have the opportunity to compete against other athletes their same age at the XTERRA Pan American Championship / USA Championship in Utah in September.
Note: The XTERRA Pan American Tour will not replace the XTERRA America Tour for amateur athletes, it will supplement it. The XTERRA Pan American Championship race will also double as the XTERRA USA Championship race and award national titles to the top American finisher in each division. U.S. amateurs still have the opportunity to race for traditional regional championship titles by counting their best four scores in the XTERRA America Tour.
