Since 2008, some of the best trail runners from around the globe have met in Hawaii to test themselves against the trails and each other. This year, this prestigious event is moving to Maui! The XTERRA Trail Running World Championship 21K event takes place on the same trails as the XTERRA World Championship triathlon and will put athletes to the test. No qualification is necessary this year, and while $10,000 in prize money is on the line, all are welcome to compete.
The off-road adventurous spirit of XTERRA reaches out to the community with XTERRA Kapalua Trail Runs as well as Kimo’s XTERRA Keiki K (free for kids ten and under).
Duke’s Beach House XTERRA 10K, Hula Grill XTERRA 5K, and Leilani’s XTERRA 3.3K races are open to one-and-all (the 3.3km is open for walkers too!). All competitors will experience the famed XTERRA World Championship run course. Parents must register their children for any of the races. Paul Mitchell stylists will be there cutting hair in exchange for a donation to the Challenged Athlete Foundation.
KEIKI K: Free fun run for kids 10 and under. Distances are age-appropriate 6-10-year-olds run about 1/2km with 5 and under 100 yards. Parents must register their children. All participants get awards and post-race refreshments. Sorry, no t-shirts for children.
