XTERRA French River utilizes the fast and exciting trail system of Hodges Village Dam, a US Army Corp of Engineers property on the French River.

Being just minutes from Worcester in Central MA, XTERRA French River is within one hour from Boston, Providence, and Hartford.

Featuring multiple events including the XPS off-road triathlon, a shorter sprint triathlon course, kayak/SUP and duathlon categories and relay team divisions - truly an option for everyone!

XTERRA French River XPS triathlon features a 2-lap swim for 0.5 miles, a fast but punchy 12 mile course with tight single track and a good taste of New England rocks and roots, and a 5 mile run that will challenge the most seasoned trail runner, including the iconic river crossing!

By completing this race, finishers can earn points towards XTERRA Worlds in Maui. The sprint course option includes a 0.25 mile swim, 8 mile bike, and 3.5 mile run along portions of the longer XPS course.

Duathletes for both long and short course start with a 1.5 mile trail run, where kayak/SUP participants start with a 1.5 mile paddle around the pond.
