XTERRA EX2 Off-Road Triathlon and Duathlon

July 12, 2015
Rocky Gap State Park - Flintstone, MD

  • Off-Road Triathlon - .75 miles swimming, 14 miles mountain biking, 5 miles trail running
  • Off-Road Duathlon - 3 miles trail running, 14 miles mountain biking, 5 miles trail running
  • Solo Racers and Teams of Two or Three

Escape the summer city heat and head for the mountains! Join us at Rocky Gap State Park in Flintstone, MD for the 12th Annual XTERRA EX2 Off-Road Triathlon and Duathlon.

The triathlon race course starts with a two lap swim in warm clear waters of a mountain lake and the duathlon starts with a three mile semi-technical trail run. After the first segment, all racers head out to complete two laps of a mountain bike course that includes twisty lakeside single-track, wide fire roads, smooth grassy sections, a few 'rock gardens', and the challenging climb of 'Evitt's Revenge'. Once completing the mountain bike course, racers transition to a 5 mile run that has rooty trails, smooth open flats, and one big climb. All in all, this course is super fun and has challenged thousands of Newbies and Seasoned Vets over the years!

The XTERRA EX2 Off-Road Triathlon is one of over 50 points series races held in the United States. Competitors earn points based on their finishing place. Racers use these points to vie for the title of XTERRA Regional Champion thus qualifying for the XTERRA USA Championship held at the end of the 2015 season. Do well at Nationals and take a trip to Worlds... We hear that Hawaii is quite nice in October!

You are going to love this race venue! With its picture perfect beauty, fantastic amenities, large clear mountain lake, and challenging trail network, Rocky Gap State Park offers a stellar venue for this nationally recognized points series race. Rocky Gap has tons to do and is just a 2.5 hour drive from the Washington and Baltimore metro areas. You can make it a family weekend, with camping, a Jack Nicklaus golf course, awesome beaches, plenty of trails, and fishing – everyone will love it! Or you can make it a romantic getaway – there is a fancy lodge on site and plenty of bed and breakfasts located right in Cumberland.

This race has sold out for many of the past several years. So, REGISTER EARLY to save money and guarantee your spot in the race.
