Xterra returns to UK in 2017

March 15, 2021 | News | No Comments

After a hiatus in 2016, the premier off-road triathlon series Xterra is to return to Britain in June 2017. Xterra UK will be taking place on June 4 at UWC Atlantic College in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales.


The race will be contained to the college’s campus, with a two-lap sea swim starting from their slipway, while the four-lap bike leg will take in all of the 166 acres of the campus, including prime woodlands, open spaces and costal fields.

The bike trail has been designed by Dafydd Davis, who is a MTB Hall of Famer, with the international off-road series returning to Wales for the first time since 2008 (Vachery in Surrey, pictured, had been the recent host of Xterra UK).

The trail run will be a brutal three lap course that takes you up the steep steps through the formal gardens and through the castle, around the campus and through a small section of woods. Confirmed athletes competing so far include 2015 Xterra European Champion Lesley Paterson, Ben Allen and Jacqui Slack.

 All the proceeds from the event will go towards funding two student scholarships at Atlantic college, one for a youngster from Wales and the second for a Syrian refugee.
