Putting the region’s best triathletes to the test across every terrain imaginable, the EMEA tour touches down in 12 countries, from the rugged and rocky mountains of South Africa to the pristine lakes of Italy, to decide who will be crowned champion of the European, Middle Eastern and African region, and earn the right to race in the EMEA 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 EMEA event at the end of the season - by gender and age group - will be named as the new reigning XTERRA Tour Champions of the EMEA region.
The tour is open to all amateur off-road triathletes, but athletes must start in at least three events within the tour to be eligible to be crowned as an XTERRA EMEA Tour Champion.
