2021 Update: We are currently working with our provincial health authorities and governing bodies for approval of a safe race plan for racing during the pandemic. We will not open registration for the 2021 XTERRA Victoria until we are confident that the race will go ahead.
XTERRA Victoria is a challenging off-road event set at beautiful Durrance Lake in Victoria, B.C. This area is well known internationally as the home of the Mt. Work Mountain Bike Park and Partridge Hills, with great views and amazing trails.
The run course is three 4.6 K loops following the lake trail and a section of the Partidge Hills trail system. There are some flat sections, some narrow winding sections, some steep uphills and lots of rolling downhills.
The Championship triathlon run course is two 4.6 K loops following the lake trail and a section of the Partidge Hills trail system. There are some flat sections, some narrow winding sections, some steep uphills and lots of rolling downhills. The Sprint triathlon follows one loop of this course. The Saturday trail run follows three loops of this course.

The success of XTERRA Victoria relies on our dedicated volunteers on race day. Get a front row view of our world class field. There are a variety of race day volunteer opportunities available for those who would like to participate without racing. There is a volunteer appreciation social during the evening following the event.
