The adventures begin at XTERRA East Gippsland in Australia on February 10th, head to XTERRA South Africa for the 15th annual event in Grabouw on February 24th, then race into the Mayon Volcano for XTERRA Albay in the Philippines on March 4th. From there, itâ€™s one epic destination after another with off-road triathlon races almost every weekend of the year leading up to the 23rd annual XTERRA World Championship in Maui on October 28th.
There are more than 100 races on the schedule including 50 in the XTERRA America Tour alone, from Oxford, Massachusetts to Laguna Beach, California. In 2018, you can choose from 18 major races in Europe, 12 championship events on the XTERRA Pan America Tour, four exotic challenges in the XTERRA Asia-Pacific Tour, six fierce battles in Canada, and dozens of other adventures around the globe. In Brazil, XTERRA has grown into a massive series of weekend off-road festivals that visits cities such as Fernando de Noronha, Ponta Grossa, and Paraty, among others.
There are new races in Garda, Italy, Transylvania (XTERRA Romania), Madrid (XTERRA Spain), Stockholm (XTERRA Sweden), Punta del Este (XTERRA Uruguay), and Quebec City (XTERRA Quebec).
If you want to stick to your roots, rest assured that all of the classics are back too, from XTERRA Oak Mountain in Alabama to XTERRA France in the Vosges Mountains.
This year, the XTERRA Asia-Pacific Championship race will be held in Danao, Philippines on April 22; the XTERRA European Championship is back in Zittau, Germany on August 18; and the Pan American Championship will once again be staged at Snowbasin Resort outside Ogden, Utah on September 15.
