HOW TO QUALIFY

HOW TO QUALIFY TO RACE IN MAUI

There are 42 races in 33 countries where amateurs can earn a qualifying spot to race at the 22nd edition of the XTERRA World Championship to be held October 29, 2017 in Kapalua, Maui.

The number of qualifying spots varies per race. See the 2017 XTERRA World Championship Qualifying Series Schedule and slot breakdowns per race below. Athletes have two weeks after the race to claim their spot, at which time unclaimed spots will roll to the next eligible athlete.

New this year, amateur racers can also earn a qualifying spot to Maui by winning their division in the XTERRA European Tour, XTERRA Pan America Tour, and XTERRA Asia-Pacific Tour. These spots do not roll.

Those racing in the XTERRA America Tour can earn a Maui spot by winning their regional championship. Roll downs will be permitted in instances where the regional champion has already qualified and registered to race at XTERRA Worlds. There are no deferrals.
