XTERRA Short Track -
the new super-exciting race format

The new XTERRA race concept called Short Track had its world premiere in Prachatice (XTERRA CZ) in 2019. A sprint-heavy, short cross-triathlon race over several laps in epic locations. Designed to be spectator friendly and ideally suited for television coverage. Natural trails paired with man-made obstacles, make for exciting, fast and action-packed head-to-head racing. Starting spots are limited to 30 per race and currently only elite athletes have access by invitation.
