New Date Set For 2023 XTERRA World Championship

After one of the most epic races of all time, the 2023 XTERRA World Championship is now officially set to head back to Molveno, Italy on September 23rd for another world-class showdown beneath the Brenta Dolomites


The XTERRA World Tour is a premium off-road triathlon series designed to give elite and amateur racers the opportunity to take on the toughest terrains across Europe, the Middle-East, Africa, the Americas and the Asia Pacific region as they compete for the right to take on the world’s best at the XTERRA World Championship. 

How to Qualify

The 2023 World Tour consists of 43 qualifying races across 22 countries, where age groupers must win their division to be awarded a slot to the XTERRA World Championship. Those who do not win their division can still qualify but must finish in a qualifying position. World Tour qualifying events generally offer between 26-51 World Championship slots per race, with an extra qualifying spot added to every division that has 10 or more racers on the starting line.

No at-large entries will be offered for the XTERRA World Championship, meaning those with Championship aspirations must earn it the hard way.

Event dates

The XTERRA World Tour runs from January to October, with events generally held around the same time every year to allow athletes to plan their season and book tentative travel plans. Once any unconfirmed dates are confirmed, the appropriate announcements will be made via the XTERRA communication channels, but check-in regularly with the list below to ensure you’re up to date.
