XTERRA is the name of a series of international competitions and qualifiers for the final of the “XTERRA World Championship”.

The competition started in 1996 in Maui with one race and evolved into the XTERRA World Tour with more than 100 events in 34 different countries.

The 4 events of the XTERRA Quebec Series will be qualifying races for the World Championship which will take place in Molveno, Italy on September 23, 2023.


How to qualify for the XTERRA World Championship?

Each race awards 26 slots among the 13 age groups.

Each first position in each category will be awarded a World Championship registration certificate and then the slots will be allocated in the order of registration (the first 15 entries completed).

Registration must be completed following qualification and all fees paid.

The French Canadians were incredible cheerleaders, warm and welcoming. Thank you for the smiles & memories! The most technical course I have ever raced on. Thank you XTERRA Quebec for the opportunity, the memories, and the most wonderful race.

2nd Elite XTERRA Québec 2019

This past Saturday’s XTERRA Quebec proved to be potentially the hardest out there (…). I loved the venue and more experience fighting for every step on the run to hold on for 3rd. A must-do race for sure!

I really liked the course as a whole it was challenging and the atmosphere was very friendly. The challenging technical course on some great trails!  All around I had a great time racing and visiting! If you are looking for a well-organized challenging course with a friendly atmosphere, you should put this one on your must-do races.

…what a great race Xterra Quebec put on. This will become one of those must-do races now for many. This would have to be one of the best courses on the Pan American circuit and the best course marking indeed.

Congratulations to the whole team!!! XTERRA Quebec is unique in addition to being on an extraordinary site. The off road challenge is so significant compared to traditional triathlon. The level of competition continues to increase from one year to the next while keeping a fun and healthy competition side. Seeing the elite at work this year was thrilling and the team of super dynamic and smiling volunteers motivated us throughout the race. See you next year!

The atmosphere of an XTERRA has nothing to do with conventional triathlons. We like the spirit of camaraderie and mutual aid between athletes that we find at XTERRA 🙂
