At the discretion of the race director athletes with an XTERRA age under 15 may participate, but they will not earn points.

There are five 100-point scale “Gold” races and the remainder are 75-point scale “Silver” races. Find the most current schedule of events at www.xterrapanam.com.

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