DETAIL

ABOUT THE SHORTTRACK

2X 0.2 K swim – 4X 1.9 K mountain bike – 2X 1.2 K trail run 

New XTERRA race concept called SHORT TRACK had the world premiere in Prachatice in 2019. Fourth edition of the race will be live broadcasted by major European television channels and filmed by well experienced Czech television crew with more than 20 cameras around the course!

Competitors will race on very short laps around Ktissky Lake with many technical sections and obstacles. This race format is super exciting for spectators on the spot as well for TV audience.

The qualification key

TOP 20 athletes from Saturday main race, TOP 3 U23 athletes from the Saturdays Sprint race + 2 wild card. Max. number of athletes – 25.

Swim 2 x 200m

Two very short laps, each 200 meters. After first lap, there is just short run out of the water and jump from pier back to the water. There is a great chance to see the swimmers for the whole swim leg of the race.

Mountain Bike (4x1,9K)

It is short, twisty, super-technical course around the lake. Rockgardens, jumps, ramps, cyclocross style uphill, drops, ford and many and many of other interesting spots on the race course. After each lap the competitors will ride through the race center full of fans.

Trail Run (2x1,2K)

This short lap will be very fast in the first half, but very technical in the second half. The whole SHORTTRACK course is in the same small location, this is why we are expecting thousands of fans around the course! After each lap athletes will run through the race center.

Marking

Blue arrows with SHORT TRACK sign for bike, red for the run loop.
