XTERRA is a brand name under which Cross-Triathlon, Cross-Duathlon and Trailrun are run worldwide with comparable high standards. The length of the XTERRA Cross-Triathlon races is about 1,5 km swimming, 30-40 km mountain bike and 10 km trail run. XTERRA requires energy, concentration and endurance, a clever division of the race, but also strength, courage and skill.
Swimming is no different from classic triathlon, but mountain biking usually involves over 1000 metres of altitude with extreme climbs and technical descents, and the final cross-country run also takes place in terrain that is sometimes obstacle-prone.
In this respect, XTERRA is much "harder" at comparable distances to the so-called Olympic Triathlon.

Important notice:
The XTERRA Germany competition is part of the O-SEE Challenge event weekend. There are other cross triathlon competitions over shorter distances or as team competitions. On Sunday the O-SEE X´Kids Challenge will take place. This is the event for children and young people aged 7-15. Further information and registration at www.o-see-challenge.de
