The footprint of XTERRA in Canada continues to grow and the hardy racers on the East Coast will be delighted to know of another opportunity to race off-road and qualify for XTERRA Worlds.
XTERRA Woolastook is the latest addition to the World Tour Schedule. The race will take place on September 13 in Woolastook Park near Fredericton, New Brunswick.
“Thrilled to join the XTERRA Tribe and bring a race to our backyard,” said race organizer Clifford Worden-Rogers, who is an XTERRA racer himself. “Athletes can expect a unique swim course that requires racers to navigate around a suspension bridge. The mountain bike course is comprised of single and double track through mostly shaded wooded areas of the park, and runners can expect a rolling course of grass and dirt trails.”
Winners of every division (10 year age groups 20-29, 30-39, etc…) will earn a qualifying spot into XTERRA Worlds and prize money will be awarded to the top three overall men and women in both the long and short course races (1st - $150, 2nd - $100, 3rd - $75).
There will also be a duathlon on offer and relay team divisions for all events, plus a bbq party after the races.
