XTERRA Malta is new to the XTERRA Euro Tour in 2015 and has the auspicious role of opening this year’s 12-stop series.
This island nation in the Mediterranean, is one of Europe’s favorite holiday destinations and its sunny, warm climate will be a welcome change from harsh winter weather.
The venue is spectacular Majjistral Park, in Ghajn Tuffieha, where the race begins with an ocean swim off a golden sand beach. Bike and run trails traverse a pristine natural reserve and include spectacular cliff edges. The scenery will make it tough for warriors to concentrate on racing over sightseeing.
XTERRA Malta offers 6,650 Euro in pro prize money and 25 coveted age group slots to the 2015 XTERRA World Championship to be held in Maui on November 1.
