2017 XTERRA Pan Am Championship
It is not necessary to qualify, nor be from the Pan America region, to race at the XTERRA Pan America Championship, which will double as the XTERRA USA Championship on September 16 in Utah. This is a one day award as opposed to the Tour Championship which counts all races.
In Utah, the top overall finisher, regardless of nationality, in each age group will be honored as the XTERRA Pan America Champion. The top American in each age group will be named the XTERRA USA Champion.
