XTERRA has added another Canadian race on the east coast where off-road athletes can qualify for XTERRA Worlds in Maui. XTERRA Woolastook is the latest addition to the XTERRA World Tour Schedule. The race will take place on September 13, 2015 in Woolastook Park near Fredericton, New Brunswick.
“Thrilled to join the XTERRA Tribe and bring a race to our backyard,” said race organizer Clifford Worden-Rogers, who is an XTERRA racer himself. “Athletes can expect a unique swim course that requires racers to navigate around a suspension bridge. The mountain bike course is comprised of single and double track through mostly shaded wooded areas of the park, and runners can expect a rolling course of grass and dirt trails.”
Winners of every division (10 year age groups) will earn a qualifying spot into the XTERRA Worlds and prize money will be awarded to the top three overall men and women in both the long and short course races (1st – C$150, 2nd – C$100, 3rd – C$75).
There will also be a duathlon on offer and relay team divisions for all events, plus a BBQ party after the races.
