The XTERRA UDC Triathlon is equivalent to a half Ironman distance event that rekindles the pioneer spirit of triathlon by using the lay of the land to determine the course.
Consisting of a 2km Swim in Glendhu Bay, Lake Wanaka, 47km Mountain Bike and a 15km Mountain Run over the historic Miners Trail course. This is a demanding course while providing breathtaking scenery along the way.
Up for grabs will be limited age group qualifying spots plus Pro spots to the XTERRA World Championships held in Hawaii - what more motivation do you need?!
If you want a new challenge, this is for you!
"This is the kind of race we need to put on in New Zealand. It is the real stuff. That run is awesome; I think the run is heaps better than the marathon. It's got everything: roads, tracks, down hills, grass, and river crossings. Central Otago high country - it can't get any better."- Axel Reiser (2011 winner).
