2022 is set to be bigger and better than ever for XTERRA fans, athletes and organisers, around the world with the announcement of the XTERRA Trail Marathon Series 2022. The exciting new 7-race series bolsters the current XTERRA calendar whilst also offering runners the chance to explore and discover new destinations within the discipline of long-distance trail running.
Beginning with the XTERRA Trail des Balcons d'Azur in France in April, the calendar will be made up of two of the existing XTERRA Trail Marathon races, whilst also offering five exciting new destinations thanks to partnerships with popular established races across Europe and Asia. Whilst the marathon distance will form the core distance of the series, the events will also offer something for everyone – from 5 km to ultra-distance, and athletes can enjoy the famous XTERRA atmosphere.
“We are excited to be able to offer marathon-distance trail running events to our calendar," said Konstantinos Koumargialis, XTERRA Europe Marketing Director. "We feel there is a strong connection between our current Off-road Triathlon audience and the global trail running community and look forward to welcoming new and current XTERRA fans to try out the series. As ever, we are committed to protecting our natural environment whilst also allowing athletes the opportunity to explore new places and conquer their sporting goals. It is going to be an incredible year!”
