What our coaches say about the course

Xterra Maui is the ultimate championship race and super challenging. Hard core swim and surf with a hilly and very hot / technical mountain bike make worthy of a World Championship! Our Tristar training plan calls for our heat training protocol as part of the final six weeks leading up to the event and includes some hard runs off the bike into the hills to set up your best ever on this course.

About the race

The world’s premier off-road triathlon, combining a 1.5-kilometer (1-mile) swim that starts at D.T. Fleming Beach in front of the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, a 32-kilometer (20-miles) mountain bike that climbs 3,500 feet up and down the lower slopes of the West Maui Mountains, and a 10.5-kilometer (6.5-miles) trail run that traverses forest trails, and beach sand.

WHO: A sold-out field of 800 racers including 75 professionals and more than 700 amateurs representing 46 countries.

WHERE: At The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua on Maui’s northwest coast.

WHY: The XTERRA World Championship race is the last in a series of more than 100 off-road triathlon races held in 30 countries and 38 U.S. States. The concept is to provide a bona-fide world championship for amateur and elite off-road triathletes. For pros there is $100,000 in prize money at stake.
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.
