2020 XTERRA Kunming off-road triathlon and accompanying sports festival scheduled for August 29-30 has been cancelled due to COVID-19.
The 2020 XTERRA Kunming off-road triathlon and accompanying sports festival scheduled for August 29-30 in the Yunnan Province of China has been cancelled due to COVID-19 related uncertainties.
“We’re making this decision now for the health and safety of all involved and to support the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic containment efforts,” said XTERRA World Tour President Janet Clark.
“While August is still several months away, the risks associated with international travel for both those athletes coming from outside of China and to the local community in Kunming are likely to persist for the foreseeable future, and our focus right now is on doing our part to keep communities safe.”

“We are very sorry to have to cancel this year’s event,” said Joffie Qiao, XTERRA China Brand Management. “We empathize with the many athletes who have been training hard for this challenge and thank them profusely for their support of XTERRA. We also greatly appreciate the understanding and support from our event partners, particularly the local community, the local government, and the crew from OCT Yangzong Lake Resort who have been building new trails and infrastructure to create an amazing home for XTERRA Kunming. We will work hard to come back stronger than ever in 2021 and look forward to reuniting with our XTERRA family soon.”
