The 2024 Xterra World Tour will span 27 countries, with new courses in destinations such as Colombia, Morocco, and Costa Rica.
According to a release from the off-road triathlon specialist… ‘These expanded locations reflect Xterra’s commitment to global outreach and bringing its core values of sustainability, challenge, community and adventure to diverse locations, while offering off-road triathletes the opportunity to discover and compete in a total of 51 of the world’s most idyllic race locations as the tour winds through Asia-Pacific, EMEA, and the Americas.’
The 2024 season is also expected to witness a competitive Xterra World Championship as the pinnacle event of the season returns to the Brenta Dolomites in Trentino, Italy, on September 28th for a third and final time before moving to a new location.
Last season, 56 nationalities were represented at the world championship, arriving from locations as far afield as Zimbabwe and Aruba. Xterra added that there was an almost 50/50 split between those who arrived with championship experience and those taking on the challenge for the very first time.
Athletes aiming to compete in the 2024 World Championship must secure their spots through performances in the Xterra World Tour races. Each event offers either 28 or 58 qualification slots, with additional slots available based on the number of competitors in each age group. The qualification process underscores the competitive nature of the championship, with no wildcard entries permitted.
