DETAIL

ABOUT THE RACE

0,3 K swim – 20 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 Championship racecourse including transition and finish in the historical Prachatice downtown.

Important note: Swim location changed for this year! Ktissky Lake is 18K from Prachatice. You can travel to the start with your car or use one of the shuttle buses with bike trailers! Departure times on the race day: 8, 9, 10 AM !

Swim

Start of the race is at Ktissky Lake, 15 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 Ktissky Lake. There will also be many live guards to keep the safety of the race. You can swim with or without wetsuit, no restrictions.

Marking

One lap around red buoys. All buoys on your left shoulder. Startline marked by yellow buoys.

Transition Area no.1

The first transition area is located on big meadow upper the lake. It is just few steps from swim start location. Each slot is marked by your race number. You have to put all your stuff into white gear bag. Organizers will transport your bags with swim gear to the second transition area after the swim leg.

Mountain Bike

Most of the course copies the main racecourse. 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.

Marking

PINK arrows, tape ropes on the trees, arrows on the tarmac

Transition Area no.2

Transition area will be on the Great Square in Prachatice. Every athlete will have his marked slot.

Run

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 3 Aid stations on the course.
