APAC'S Premier Off-Road Triathlon Series
The XTERRA APAC Tour consists of 7 of the toughest off-road triathlons on the calendar to decide the strongest and fastest age group athletes in all of Asia-Pacific. Up against some of the most beautiful yet brutal terrains, from the rocky mountains of tropical Taiwan to the lakes and jungles of New Zealand to the white sands and blue lagoons of Tahiti, the Asia-Pacific Tour pits racer vs nature to determine who will be crowned tour champion of the Asia-Pacific region and earn the right to wear the APAC Tour Champion jersey.
To be crowned champion, athletes must compete for points using the XTERRA World Performance Index - a proprietary, formula-driven system that delivers a score for every finisher based on factors such as field strength and depth, number of participants, elevation, water and air temperature, rainfall, trail conditions, and more.
Those with the highest XTERRA World Performance Index points score at an XTERRA APAC event at the end of the season - by gender and age group - will be named as the new reigning XTERRA Tour Champions of the APAC region.
The tour is open to all amateur off-road triathletes, but athletes must start in at least 2 XTERRA events in two different countries in the Asia-Pacific region to be eligible to be crowned as an XTERRA APAC Tour Champion.

How old you are on December 31, 2023 determines your age group. There are divisions for men & women ages 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, 80+, and Physically Challenged OPEN.

2.
Race Participation
You must start at least two (2) XTERRA World Championship qualifying events in two different countries in the Asia-Pacific region to be eligible for XTERRA Asia-Pacific Tour Champion honours.  There is no limit to how many races you can do, but only races in the Asia-Pacific region count towards Asia-Pacific Tour titles. The season spans the entirety of the 2023 calendar year, from the first race of the season to the last
3.
Score
You will receive an XTERRA World Performance Index points score at every event you compete in. The WPI is a formula-driven scoring system that ranks every athlete who competes at an XTERRA World Championship qualifying event based on the strength and depth of field, number of participants, difficulty of the course (e.g. elevation, water & air temperature, rainfall, trail type, etc.), level of event (e.g. Gold, Silver, Championship), and your finishing time.
4.
Tour Champion
The athlete with the highest XTERRA World Performance Index points score at an XTERRA APAC event at the end of the season - by gender and age group - earns the title of XTERRA APAC Tour Champion.
5.
Tie Breakers
If there is a tie in points score in a division, the tie-breaker will be the person with the most wins in that division. If still tied after counting wins, the person finishing highest in the most recent race where both competed. If no head-to-head exists, tie- breaker goes to the person finishing highest in the most recent race.

Can I see the formula you use?
So, is my final score the average of my three scores?
