XTERRA what is it?

Cross Triathlon or XTERRA is a private label.
It’s the off-road version of triathlon. It consists of a nature triathlon in which athletes link swimming, mountain biking and trail running. As with the road triathlon, the events are available in different formats (XS, S, M, L), depending on the distances to be covered in each discipline. The label offers a global circuit of 35 races spread over 3 major championships (Asia-Pacific, Europe and Panamerican) as well as an annual world final in Maui (Hawaii).
