In 2018, XTERRA presented the brand-new race format to the endurance sports enthusiasts in Taiwan. After months of scouting for perfect places for swimming, mountain biking and trail running, XTERRA came to Kenting where the azure sea meets the vert mountains.

Riding across the vast and majestic grassland and running on the coral rocks along the crystal shore of Kenting was a fresh and exciting experience for all. 
 
Ever since the inaugural race, more and more athletes joined the XTERRA family and carried on their adventures with us. During the past five years, we’ve been working on offering quality races and designing memorable experiences for athletes and their family and friends.
 
This year, we sincerely invite you to the celebration of the 5th anniversary of XTERRA Taiwan. We aim to create fond experiences and continue fulfilling the mission “We Play & Protect.” 
 
Let’s high FIVE with nature!
