XTT registration now open

September's off-road tri is ready for entries

The XTT Off Road Triathlon is now open for registration offering all athletes, of every ability, to race in the sprint- or full-distance events.

For the seventh year, based at Gibraltar Barracks, this epic event is now the largest off road triathlon in the UK. With some of the UK’s top athletes having already signed up we are planning for a record turn out.

“It’s great to see the UK host to such a great event, which I intend to win this year. Unless Cedric Lassonde pips me at the post!” boasts Sam Gardner

The route includes an open-water lake swim, a fun but technical off-road bike route through the forest and a stunning trail run across the Army training land.

The event entry fee includes free download photographs, chip timing, results TV display, event village, free bike mechanic service, café, free massage and Forgoodness Shakes recovery.

Notes on the X Tri Series…

Along with Scott bikes the XTT has teamed up with three other race directors to create the UK’s first off-road triathlon series: Scott X Tri Series. Athletes can enter the series of four events for a 30% discount and race to claim their share of the £5,000 prize pot.

The first of the X Tri Series is held at Northampton, Mud&Mayhem 22 May. Sign up soon to benefit from the 30% series entry discount www.xtriseries.co.uk
