OVERVIEW

The 13th annual XTERRA Oak Mountain off-road triathlons and trail runs return to Oak Mountain State Park in Shelby County, Alabama on the weekend of May 19-20.

The main event combines a 1.5km swim, 30km mountain bike and 10km trail run. For amateurs, there will be 51 spots into the XTERRA World Championship to be held October 28 in Maui up-for-grabs, and for elites, $15,000 USD in prize money and points in the XTERRA Pan Am Pro Series.

XTERRA will also offer a shorter distance Sprint race – 750-meter for the swim, 15km mountain bike and a 5km trail run, and an even shorter distance Xticer race which mixes a fun 200-meter swim with a 10km mountain bike and 2km trail run.

From IRONMAN TriClub Program, Americas:

Hello Vulcan Triathletes,

Effective today, your club will now be in Division IV and will remain there throughout the 2018 season. We will reassess your number of affiliated athletes in December.

Divisions are based on total affiliated raced athletes from the prior year (2017). If a member has yet raced an IRONMAN event and plans on completing an IM event in the future, please encourage them to affiliate with you club – it will not affect your division size.

Division Breakdown

Division I: Over 200 athletes
Division II: 126 - 199 athletes
Division III: 76 - 125 athletes
Division IV: 26 - 75 athletes
Division V: Under 25 athletes

If you have any questions, please email us at triclub@ironman.com.

All of our suits are made with limestone neoprene; free from harmful petrochemicals. We use fabric made from recycled plastic bottles AND we partner with like-minded green companies to re-purpose your old suits into yoga mats and other useful items. We love the water just as much as you do, and we believe our entire production process should support the earth, not harm it. This spring, go green while you swim fast.
