This is the 21st straight year the XTERRA World Championship has been broadcast to a national, now international audience.
The show, which highlights Maui’s natural beauty as a scenic backdrop to XTERRA warriors putting their mental and physical toughness to the ultimate test, will be seen by more than six million viewers via national syndication (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX), Fox Sports Network, ESPN International, and European distribution.
Last year’s race was lauded as one of the toughest challenges in the history of XTERRA, and in this show viewers will see for themselves why. It started with big swells, a strong current, and shore-pounding waves and got tougher from there as riders trudged through muddy trails in the West Maui Mountains.
The finish times were the slowest ever recorded, yet racer after racer described it as “epic” and “one for the ages.”
More than 800 endurance athletes from 46 countries participated in the event, which combined a one-mile rough water swim with a 20-mile mountain bike and grueling 6.5-mile trail run.
