The event is inspired by the island of Taiwan, home to the XTERRA Asia-Pacific Championship. Jade Mountain is the highest mountain in Taiwan with an expansive view of the island.
Entry is free and distances offered reflect that of the Championship race in Kenting. The full-distance race combines a 5K run with a 26K bike and 10K run. The Sprint (or Lite) race features a 2K run, 13K bike, and 5K run. Both can be completed by individuals or 2-3 person relay teams, and the event will benefit the Taiwan Thousand Miles Trail Association.
“We’ve had a lot of fun putting these events together and connecting with the spirit of the destination,” said XTERRA President, Janet Clark. “Taiwan is a particularly spectacular place, rich in culture and beauty.”

TMI is a non-profit organization which aims to preserve Taiwan’s natural beauty and create an eco-friendly environment by building or rebuilding, and maintaining a network of hiking trails around the entire island. XTERRA Foundation will match the first $1,000 in donations.
