XTERRA Short Track Czech Republic

The 13th annual XTERRA European Championship returns to Prachatice, Czech Republic for full-distance and televised Short Track off-road triathlon racing on Saturday and Sunday, August 13-14.

Nearly 70 elites from 20 countries including the reigning World Cross Triathlon Champions Arthur Serrieres (FRA) and Sandra Mairhofer (ITA) will line-up for the championship on Saturday, which combines a 1.5-kilometer swim, 30K mountain bike, and 10K trail run and dishes out €25,000 in prize money.

The top 20 finishers from that race advance to Sunday’s televised showcase XTERRA Short Track event, along with a handful of wildcard selections.

Live coverage starts Sunday, August 14, with the women’s race at 8:50am CEST, followed by the men’s race at 10:50 CEST.

Spectators on-site and online will have a front row seat to all the action in a race that combines a two-lap, 400-meter swim with an exciting four-lap, 7.6K mountain bike course requiring skill and strength to master sections such as the Vittoria Rocks, The ElleErre downhill, and the Red Bull jumps, and finishes with a tough two-loop, 2.4K trail run.

The winning effort should take the world’s best off-road triathletes about 30 to 40 minutes to complete.
