Start the countdown clock, the greatest off-road triathlon in the world is just one month away.
On October 29, 2017 a sold-out field featuring more than 800 of the best professional and amateur off-roaders from some 50 countries will gather on the sand at D.T. Fleming Beach in Kapalua, Maui to say Aloha to each other, then chase the sports ultimate title – the XTERRA World Championship.
As the culmination of 40 qualifying events held around the globe "Worlds" is one massive celebration for those who perpetuate the healthy, active, and adventurous Live More lifestyle.
It’s a 1.5km swim, 32km mountain bike, and 10.5km trail run, and while the distances stay basically the same year-after-year, the conditions never are. That’s the beauty of off-road racing, the perpetually evolving challenge of racing against the unknown.
Will it be a grueling mudfest like last year, or will we get a month of dry days that turn those trails into a dusty bowl? Will northwest swells bring shore-pounding waves? Will the Maui heat make it a suffer-fest for all? Only time will tell…
We’ll find out five Sunday’s from now but one thing is certain, in XTERRA it's you vs. Mother Nature ... and she is unstoppable, unbeatable, and unbreakable. Watch last year’s show.
