XTERRA Myrtle Beach on Sunday, May 3, features one of the most unique starts compared to all other XTERRA triathlons. The race begins with boat ride to the start line where then competitors will swim 1000 meters back to shore into transition one. The bike will challenge all competitors with a two lap 14 mile course which will then end with a very fast run. The run is a five miles on a flat course that will allow racers to run quick splits.
The XTERRA triathlon will test the will of even the most headstrong athletes but you are left with no greater feeling of satisfaction when it comes to accomplishing this challenge. Myrtle Beach is a great place to start participating in triathlons for people of all levels.
Points are awarded to the top fifteen finishers in each Age Group at each XTERRA American Tour race. The athlete with the most points by gender, age group, and by XTERRA Region of Residence will earn the title of XTERRA Regional Champion and is named as 2015 Regional Champion. Regional champions and point scorers from each region are invited to compete against each other in the XTERRA USA Championship Race in Ogden, Utah.
