This year, the XTERRA Guam will be licensed as an official championship qualifier event. This means that participants have a chance at winning a part of the US$15,000 prize for professional triathletes or earning a spot at the XTERRA World Championship event for age-group (amateur) triathletes. The XTERRA World Championship, held annually in Maui, is attended by the best athletes from around the world.
XTERRA Guam has been voted one of the “Top 5 Off-Road Triathlons in the World” by Triathlete Magazine. The course includes warm, open water swim, biking on Guam’s fun yet challenging terrain, navigating the jungle, sliding down slippery waterfalls, and running along the beach toward the finish. The modified international distance off-road triathlon has a 1.5K swim in the beautiful waters of Piti, Guam, 31K bike up Nimitz Hill and through the Mt. Alutom area, and a memorable 8.2K trail run.
As XTERRA Guam title sponsors, GVB will be joining forces with platinum sponsor and official airline of XTERRA Guam, United Airlines, in addition to the Port Authority of Guam, Cycles Plus, Payless Car Rental, the Guam Triathlon Federation, KUAM Sports, Hornet Sports, and the Mayor's offices of Ordot-Chalan Pago and Piti.
