Sprint Triathlon

RUN 5.5K
The information on this page is not yet confirmed, and may be based on the previous years' edition.

The Sprint is a great stepping stone for the full XTERRA. The route is very achievable for athletes of all abilities – it has very little elevation gain, the cycle is mostly jeep track, but certain parts will give you a taste of the full flavoured XTERRA. The Sprint is also great for speedy youngsters honing their race craft. The route is crafted and curated by the Caveman specifically for this event and features an exciting new single track called Twitchers Alley.
