HOW TO QUALIFY

HOW TO QUALIFY TO RACE IN MAUI

There are 43 races in 33 countries where amateurs can earn a qualifying spot to race at the 23rd edition of the XTERRA World Championship to be held October 28, 2018 in Kapalua, Maui.

The number of qualifying spots varies per race. See the 2018 XTERRA World Championship Qualifying Series Schedule and slot breakdowns per race below.  Athletes have two weeks after the race to claim their spot, at which time unclaimed spots roll to the next eligible athlete.

Amateur racers can also earn a qualifying spot to Maui by winning their division in the XTERRA European Tour, XTERRA Pan America Tour, and XTERRA Asia-Pacific Tour. These spots do not roll.

Those racing in the XTERRA America Tour can earn a Maui spot by winning their regional championship. Roll downs will be permitted in instances where the regional champion has already qualified and registered to race at XTERRA Worlds.  There are no deferrals.  The XTERRA Australia Series also awards Maui slots to the top point scorers in the three-race series. Learn more on that at xterraaustralia.com.
