TOUR OVERVIEW

DOWNLOAD 2019 AMERICA TOUR RULES

The XTERRA America Tour is designed to provide age group athletes with a bona-fide championship to compete for within their geographic region. At the end of the regular season the top performers from each region have a chance to compete against other athletes their same age - but from different regions - at the national championship in Utah on September 14 (which doubles as the XTERRA Pan American Championship).

TOP THREE SCORES WIN: After the last race of the regular season (XTERRA Hawaii Island on August 25, 2019) add your best three scores of the year together. 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. 27, 2019 in Maui.

2. DETERMINE YOUR DIVISION/AGE GROUP: How old you are on December 31, 2019 determines your age group.

We have divisions for men and women 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70+ (w), 70-74 (m), 75-79 (m), 80+ (m), and Physically Challenged.

3. RACE AND SCORE: Enter as many races as you want and score points by finishing in the top 15 of your age group. There are two 100-point scale “Gold” races (Oak Mtn and Beaver Creek) and the remainder are 75-point scale “Silver” races.

4. TOP THREE SCORES WIN: After the last race of the regular season (XTERRA Hawaii Island on August 25, 2019) add your best three scores of the year together. 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. 27, 2019 in Maui. Roll downs will be permitted in instances where the regional champion has already qualified and registered to race at Worlds. There are no deferrals.

5. MANDATORY: You must race at least one XTERRA in your region of residence, and you must race at least two XTERRA events to be eligible for XTERRA Regional Championship honors.

PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED ATHLETES: Physically Challenged athletes may choose to compete in the XTERRA Physically Challenged male/female Open Division or in XTERRA age group divisions. PC athletes must choose whether to race in the PC Open or age group division at their first race of the season and remain in that category for the entire year. There are no PC age group divisions (15-19, 20-24, etc.) or disability categories (PT1, PT2, etc.). All other rules above apply.

Off-Road to Maui

QUALIFYING FOR XTERRA WORLDS: Maui slots will be awarded to XTERRA Regional Champions at the end of the season. In addition, the XTERRA Oak Mountain, XTERRA Beaver Creek, and XTERRA USA/Pan Am Championship races will award slots to the top finishers in each age group.

Wetsuit Policy

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.
