2018 XTERRA REAL
Granite Bay, CA, US
The rules are simple. Amateur athletes can compete in as many events as they want and at the end of the season the athlete with the most points in each region by division wins.
The more you race, the more points you collect and the more likely you are to win a Regional Championship. Enter as many races as you want and score points by finishing in the top 15 of your age group.
You must race ONE XTERRA event in your region of residence and TWO XTERRA events total (second race can be from any region) to be eligible for XTERRA Regional Championship honors.
The athlete with the most points ‐ by gender, by age group, and by region of residence ‐ earns the title of XTERRA Regional Champion, exclusive apparel identifying them as the champ, and a qualifying spot into the XTERRA World Championship race to be held Oct. 28, 2018 in Kapalua, Maui.

XTERRA follows the Swimming Conduct rules for Wetsuit and Speedsuit Use established by the USA Triathlon at all XTERRA World Tour events, and the XTERRA World Championship.
Each age group participant shall be permitted to wear a wetsuit without penalty in any event sanctioned by USA Triathlon up to and including a water temperature of 78 degrees Fahrenheit. When the water temperature is greater than 78 degrees, but less than 84 degrees Fahrenheit, age group participants may wear a wet suit at their own discretion, provided however that participants who wear a wet suit within this temperature range shall not be eligible for prizes or awards. Age group participants shall not wear wet suits in water temperatures equal to or greater than 84 degrees Fahrenheit. The wetsuit policy for elite athletes shall be determined by the USAT Athletes Advisory Council. The AAC has set the wetsuit maximum temperature for elite athletes at 68 degrees for swim distances less than 3000 meters and 71.6 degrees for distances of 3000 meters or greater. Any swimmer wearing a wetsuit with a thickness measured in any part greater than 5 millimeters shall be disqualified.
XTERRA World Championship: Wetsuits ARE NOT allowed for pro or amateur athletes racing in Maui. Speedsuits or skin suits ARE permitted. View list of permitted speedsuits.
