0.3 K swim – 14 K mountain bike – 5 K trail run
The best chance to try XTERRA! Each part of the race was shortened to make an ideal race for XTERRA beginners. Despite of easy and short course, you can still enjoy signature spots of the European Championship race course including transition and finish in the historical Prachatice downtown.
Start of the race is at Kristanovicky Lake, 10 K from Prachatice. Water is clear (with bronze colour) and warm (20-24 Celsius). The sprint race swim course is just one lap of 300 meters in the waters of Kristanovicky Lake. There will also be many live guards to keep the safety of the race. You can swim with or without wetsuit, no restrictions.
Most of the course copies the main race course. We skip the dangerous downhills and steep climbs to make the race suitable for mountain bike beginners or roadies. The course is still very challenging with one nice longer uphill and last downhill into the center of Prachatice, where the second transition area will be located. There will be one Aid station on the course.
The run course is the same for main and sprint races. The competitors of the sprint race run just one lap. First and last part of the course is in the old city center. The middle part is in the wood on slopes of Cerna Hora (hill). This part of the course is more technical, with few steep uphills and downhills. There are also some nice narrow singletrails and a few hundred meters across the field. There will be 2 Aid stations on the course.
