THE COURSE

There should be no doubt that it requires a sturdy mountain bike and gross cleated trail shoes when the stunning area around Møns Klint has to be overcome.
The area around Møns Klint is unique. It offers everything needed to create a physically and technically challenging event, where nature becomes the stage, and participants players. The route at Møns Klint will lead athletes through some of the most beautiful and varied forest with the best views in Denmark. There will be deep ravines to be overcome, stairs to steppes, streams to be passed, and not least the trays to be overcome.

The focus has been to create a varied route with emphasis on the technical and physical as well as impressive views.

COURSE MARKING

The course will be marked with marker flags made before raceday, and it will be thoroughly reviewed and tested by outsiders.

ABOUT XTERRA

XTERRA is about going off-road! And by taking the best of triathlon and make it muddy, you get
a combination of very unique experiences and challenges. It is the laid-back “hang loose” atmosphere from Maui, along with the community of the raw nature that makes XTERRA the leading off-road triathlon events in the sport.

In XTERRA we are one big family and there is room for everyone – it’s about getting wet, muddy and not least trying out your own limits.

The full distance begins with the swim of the coast from Møn beach. From here the athletes run out of the water and up to the transition zone, where they take off their wet suit and change to their mountain bike. The MTB course offers unique tracks and challenging terrain.

Then the route goes back through the transition zone, where you change to a pair of trail running shoes and out on the trail.
A run course that takes the athletes through the woods and along the beach and will force out the last energy. Eventually, you run across the finish line under the XTERRA arch and can call yourself a true XTERRA Warrior!
