New XTERRA race format „Long Distance“ will debut in Czech Republic in 2022! Wonderful lake of Lipno, small town of Horni Plana, endless gravel roads around an old Schwarzenberg water channel, gradual hills of Sumava mountains and a nearby Austrian ski resort Hochficht all of these places will host XTERRA race unlike any other. This race is a new adventure, new experience, new challenge for athletes who aren´t interested in the most difficult race on the tour. This race is made for endurance athletes who are looking for a new type of long distance race in nature with ultimate race venue and five star service all around. Join us for the first edition of XTERRA Sumava!SCHEDULE
From your arrival to Horni Plana to the end of the afterparty we want to give you racing experience in new quality standard. Healthy local food, live music, community events, XTERRA staff services, equipped aid stations and of course a stunning race course is the key for your ultimate experience. This course is unique! Swim part will take place in clear waters of Lipno lake. For the first time XTERRA is producing race with less bike technical sections, for the first time XTERRA will allow gravel bikes to race and not only to race! This kind of the course will be the best for gravels or light hardtail mountain bikes. As this race is “point-to-point” type the second transition is in a different location than start / finish location. This allowed us to plan crazy run course through Sumava mountains, around Vltava river with last few K’s on the smooth and fast tarmac path. Even this is not typical XTERRA race there will be still 26 qualify slots available for XTERRA World Championships!
