XTERRA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
Distances 1.5km swim, 30.4km mountain bike, 9.5km path run
The Ironman World Championships are soon followed by the world’s most respected off-road triathlon held is Hawaii. Qualification for Xterra World Championships, the Maui mash-up, can be gained through one of Xterra’s events over the world with entry maxing out at 800.
A rough-water non-wetsuit swim in the Pacific continues with just 20 miles of biking. Of course, in Maui this means 3,300-feet of climbing on dirt-tracks and single-trail. The best multisport off-roader is decided by a technical, hilly run.
