In 2023, for the first-time in XTERRA off-road triathlon history, the most compelling World Tour events from the EMEA, Americas, and Asia-Pacific regions will unite to create a premier series of events that will award roughly $350,000 to XTERRA’s fastest professional athletes.

The seven-stop, 12-race XTERRA World Cup kicks off April 15, 2023 at the XTERRA Asia-Pacific Championship in Kenting, Taiwan, and culminates September 23-24 at the XTERRA World Championships in Trentino, Italy.

In addition to seven traditional full-distance events that combine a 1.5-kilometer swim with approximately 30km of mountain biking and 10km of trail running, there are five fast and furious XTERRA Short Track races on the schedule that will be streamed live.

Round two of the XTERRA World Cup will take place at Oak Mountain State Park in Pelham, AL (May 20-21), with a full-distance on Saturday and the first of five Short Track races on Sunday.

Rounds 3-thru-5 are in the EU with the XTERRA European Championship in Namur, Belgium (June 10-11), followed by XTERRA Czech (August 12-13), and XTERRA Germany (August 18-19), and round six heads to the Rockies in Avon, Colorado for the XTERRA USA Championship (August 26).

“The XTERRA World Cup was designed to provide a high aspirational race series for our sports’ biggest stars from across the globe, a series of events where our best athletes can race head-to-head on the most epic courses in the world,” said J-D Cousens, XTERRA VP of Operations & Global Marketing.

To determine XTERRA World Cup Series Champions, elites will add their best four scores from the first six full-distance races with their best three Short Track scores and whatever they get (or don’t get) at the XTERRA World Championship.

“We’re really excited to provide our elites with an opportunity to chase an XTERRA World Cup crown and earn a lot more prize money next year,” said XTERRA Europe technical director, Nico Lebrun. “By being able to drop two scores from the first six races, the schedule provides elites from every region around the world with a variety of options to make the series work for them and be fresh for the ultimate showdown at Worlds in late September.”

To be eligible for the €100.000 XTERRA World Cup Series bonus awarded equally to the top 10 men and women points scorers, elites must start at least two of the three continental championship events which include the XTERRA Asia-Pacific Championship (April 15 in Kenting, Taiwan), the XTERRA European Championship (June 10 in Namur, Belgium), and/or the XTERRA USA Championship (August 26 in Avon, Colorado, USA).
