APAC'S Premier Off-Road Triathlon Series
The XTERRA APAC Tour consists of 6 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.
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.

Rules and Qualification
1.
Age Groups
The age groups that form part of the regional tours are: 18-19, 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. Your age on December 31 determines your age group.
2.
Race Participation
You must start at least two (2) XTERRA World Championship qualifying events in the APAC region to be eligible for XTERRA APAC Tour Champion honours. There is no limit to how many races you can do, but only races in the APAC region count towards APAC Tour titles. The season spans the entirety of the 2024 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. You will also receive a loyalty bonus score, which is one point for each race you participate in beyond the minimum required (2). Your final score is your highest WPI score plus your loyalty bonus as a percentage.
Example: Your highest WPI score is 195, and you participate in 4 races, so your loyalty bonus is 2. Your final score is 195 + 2% = 198.9.
4.
Tour Champion
The athlete with the highest final score 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 the final score in the division, the tie-breaker will be the person finishing highest in the most recent race where both competed. If no head-to-head exists, the tie-breaker will be the person with the most tour wins. If still tied after counting wins, tie-breaker goes to the person finishing highest in the most recent race.

Do I have to keep track of my score, or do you?
Can I see the formula you use?
So, is my final score the average of my three scores?
