Amateur Rules

DOWNLOAD AMATEUR RULES DOCUMENT

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 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. The season is from March-to-September, 2018.

Gold races: Brazil, Oak Mountain, Beaver Creek, Mexico, Pan America Championship.
Silver races: Chile, Argentina , Costa Rica, Uruguay, Dominican Republic, Victoria, Quebec.

Step 3: Must Race Two - You must race at least two (2) XTERRA events during the season to be named the XTERRA Pan American 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 Pan American Tour Champion and a qualifying spot into the XTERRA World Championship race to be held Oct. 28, 2018 in 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 Pan America Tour Champions at the end of the season, and at every XTERRA Pan America Tour Gold and Silver Event.

2018 XTERRA Pan America Championship: It is not necessary to qualify, nor be from the Pan America region, to race at the XTERRA Pan America Championship, which will double as the XTERRA USA Championship on September 15 in Utah. This is a one day award as opposed to the Tour Championship which counts all races. In Utah, the top overall finisher, regardless of nationality, in each age group will be honored as the XTERRA Pan America Champion. The top American in each age group will be named the XTERRA USA Champion.

If no head-to-head exists, the tiebreaker goes to the person finishing highest in the most recent race.

2018 XTERRA Pan America Championship: It is not necessary for elites to qualify to race at the XTERRA Pan America Championship, which will double as the XTERRA USA Championship on September 15 in Ogden, Utah. This is a one day award as opposed to the Tour title which counts all races. In Utah, the top overall male/female elite finisher, regardless of nationality, will be honored as the XTERRA Pan America Champion. The top American male/female elite will be named the XTERRA USA Champion.

Elite Prize Money: Silver races offer the equivalent of $7,500 USD in elite prize money to the top five men and women. Gold events offer the equivalent of $15,000 USD in elite prize money to the top seven men and women. The XTERRA Pan America Championship race in Utah will offer $20,000 USD for the race and distribute an additional $60,000 USD in prize money to the top 10 men and women in the final XTERRA Pan Am Pro Series rankings.

Wetsuit Policy

XTERRA follows the Swimming Conduct rules for Wetsuit and Speedsuit Use established by the USA Triathlon at XTERRA Oak Mountain, XTERRA Beaver Creek and the XTERRA Pan Am 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.
