Championship XTERRA Asia-Pacific Trail Run

With the recent loosening of COVID-related travel restrictions, it has officially been announced that Taiwan will host the 2023 XTERRA Asia-Pacific Championship on April 15-16, 2023 in a double-feature weekend that will also see the first ever XTERRA Asia-Pacific Trail Run Championship play out in the Kenting National Park of Pingtung County.

The event will return for a second year running to the picturesque Stony Brook Nature Farm, located within the Kenting National Park, to once again showcase the beauty of Southern Taiwan’s natural terrain and offer a truly unique outdoor experience for athletes and spectators alike.

XTERRA Trail Run World Series

Forming part of the new XTERRA Trail Run World Series,  the Asia-Pacific Trail Run Championship will take place the following day, offering a prize purse of $5,200 USD and a total of 247 qualifying spots to the XTERRA Trail Run World Championship spread amongst the marathon distance (116 slots), half marathon (116 slots), and the duo category (15 slots).

“We’re thrilled to have the APAC Champs back after 3 long years off, and even more so to be hosting the inaugural Asia-Pacific Trail Run Championship on the same weekend,” said J-D Cousens, XTERRA VP of Operations & Global Marketing. “The off-road community in the APAC region has been raring to go for some time now, so it feels great to be able to welcome everybody back with a double-feature weekend that will showcase a new venue for the international athletes, improved bike and run sections, and also just how much XTERRA Taiwan has grown since we began in 2018.”

Apart from the full-distance triathlon and the marathon and half-marathon trail runs, the event will include a 29km XC mountain bike race, a beginner-friendly 7km fun run, and kids push bike duathlon.
There will also be live music, food trucks, cultural demonstrations, and entertainment spread throughout the weekend to round out a true festival of off-road racing.

On April 16th, 2023, the first ever XTERRA Asia-Pacific Trail Run Championship will be held in the tropical, adventure paradise of Taiwan!
