AMATEUR RULES

DOWNLOAD ASIA-PACIFIC AMATEUR RULES

Step 1: Identify your Age Group – How old you are on December 31, 2018 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, 70-74, 75-79 (m), 80+ (m), and Physically Challenged. At the discretion of the race director athletes with an XTERRA age under 15 may participate, but they will not earn points.

Step 2: 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 and the remainder are 75-point scale “Silver” races. Find the most current schedule of events at www.xterraasiapacific.com. The season is from March-to-May, 2018.

Gold races: Albay (Philippines) and Danao (Philippines)
Silver races: New Zealand and Tahiti

Step 3: Must Race Two – You must race at least two (2) XTERRA events during the season to be named the XTERRA Asia-Pacific Tour Champion. There is no limit to how many races you can count.

Step 4: Most Points Win - The athlete with the most points at the end of the season - by gender and age group - earns the title of XTERRA Asia-Pacific Tour Champion and a qualifying spot into the XTERRA World Championship race to be held Oct. 28, 2018 in Kapalua, Maui.

Step 5: Tie Breaker - If there is a tie in points, the tie-breaker will be the person with the most wins. If still tied after counting wins, the person finishing highest in the most recent race where both competed. If no head-tohead exists, tie-breaker goes to the person finishing highest in most recent race.

Step 6: Qualifying for XTERRA Worlds in Maui - Maui slots will be awarded to XTERRA Asia-Pacific Tour Champions at the end of the season, and at every XTERRA Asia-Pacific Tour Gold and Silver Event.

2018 XTERRA Asia-Pacific Championship: It is not necessary to qualify, nor be from the Asia-Pacific region, to race at the XTERRA Asia-Pacific Championship, which will double as the XTERRA Philippines Championship on April 22 in Danao. This is a one day award as opposed to the Tour Championship which counts all races. In Danao, the top overall finisher, regardless of nationality, in each age group will be honored as the XTERRA Asia-Pacific Champion. The top Filipino finisher in each age group will be named the XTERRA Philippines Champion.

Physically Challenged Athletes - Physically Challenged athletes may choose to compete in the XTERRA Physically Challenged male/female division or in XTERRA age group divisions. PC athletes must choose whether to race in the PC 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…)
- PC athletes who race at least one XTERRA will earn a World Championship slot.
- The male/female PC athlete with the most points at end of the season earns title of Asia-Pacific Tour Champion.

Asian-Elite Category - This category is designed to encourage highly qualified and fast age group athletes from the region to upgrade to a more competitive classification with the goal to make the next move to International Pro/Elite status.

Asian Elite athletes must hold a passport from an Asian country OR be a Pacific Islander (excluding Hawaii). Athletes from other continents will not be considered. It is not necessary that the athlete be born in Asia but must now reside and compete there.

The XTERRA World Tour Race Director will make the final determination of Asian Elite status, if necessary.

Email: asianelite@xterraplanet.com with your race CV and passport issuing country.

An athlete meeting those criteria must show results from past races to justify the upgrade.

  1. Winning their age group at an XTERRA World Tour event;
  2. Winning their age group at a triathlon with participation of over 300 athletes;
  3. Winning their age group at two triathlons with participation of over 150 athletes;
  4. Finishing in the top 3 overall of all age group athletes in their gender at a triathlon of over 150 athletes.

- Points are scored in the same way as age group points
