This will be the 14th year for XTERRA in Richmond. The River City is widely regarded as the sport’s finest urban adventure venue. Both the off-road triathlon and trail running events feature a unique combination of natural and man-made obstacles as well as the best metropolitan trail system in the country. The epic ride through the James River Parks System lures athletes from more than 30 states and pros from around the world to Richmond each year.
Events include the XTERRA Fugitive 10k trail run, the XTERRA Richmond halfmarathon trail run, free kids races, free clinics taught by pro athletes, the Paul Mitchell Cut-a-Thon to raise money for the Challenged Athletes Foundation, and two off-road triathlons, a half-distance XTERRA Sport race (perfect for newcomers) and the XTERRA East Championship.
