The XTERRA Wild Forest VR Trail Runs and Duathlons powered by COROS, to be held over five days from December 3-7, 2020, are the seventh in a series of XTERRA VR events to engage the endurance community and their families as they train to stay fit and healthy.
Inspired by Germany, home to the XTERRA European Championships, the Wild Forest VR races invite the entire family to join in the fun with five running races ranging from a kids’ K to a full marathon, plus short-and-long course duathlon options.
“As we enter the holiday season we’ve got family on our minds and in our hearts,” said XTERRA President, Janet Clark. “With the XTERRA Wild Forest VR races we hope to provide an adventure opportunity for the young ones, an escape into nature for their parents, and a playful experience for all involved.”
Entry into XTERRA Wild Forest VR events is free and each individual registrant will be entered to win a COROS APEX Premium Multisport watch*.
“We’re grateful for the support of our partners at COROS, the official sports watch of the XTERRA U.S. Trail Run Series, who enable us to produce fun events like this that inspire our community to get outside, go for an adventure, and stay active.”
COROS is also offering a free additional cable charger with every watch purchase by using the code “XTERRA” and adding the charger to your cart at www.coros.com during checkout.
The events are a benefit for the Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union, one of the oldest and largest environment associations in Germany, who provide a framework for children and young adults aged 6-to-27 to protect nature.
XTERRA Kids will receive a digital bib they can color themselves and all VR participants will receive a digital XTERRA Passport to collect a commemorative event stamp to display on their Instagram or Facebook stories. XTERRA will recognize the top 25 in each division – men, women, and team through leaderboards updated as results are posted and authenticated. Final results will be published on December 8, 2020.
Full event details and registration are available now at xterraplanet.com/wild-forest.
