XTERRA Short Track Czech Republic on Saturday and Sunday, August 13-14!

Από 11 Αυγ 2022

The 13th annual XTERRA European Championship returns to Prachatice, Czech Republic for full-distance and televised Short Track off-road triathlon racing on Saturday and Sunday, August 13-14.

Nearly 70 elites from 20 countries including the reigning World Cross Triathlon Champions Arthur Serrieres (FRA) and Sandra Mairhofer (ITA) will line-up for the championship on Saturday, which combines a 1.5-kilometer swim, 30K mountain bike, and 10K trail run and dishes out  €25,000 in prize money.  

The top 20 finishers from that race advance to Sunday's televised showcase XTERRA Short Track event, along with a handful of wildcard selections.

Live coverage starts Sunday, August 14, with the women's race at 8:50am CEST, followed by the men's race at 10:50 CEST.  

Spectators on-site and online will have a front row seat to all the action in a race that combines a two-lap, 400-meter swim with an exciting four-lap, 7.6K mountain bike course requiring skill and strength to master sections such as the Vittoria Rocks, The ElleErre downhill, and the Red Bull jumps, and finishes with a tough two-loop, 2.4K trail run.

The winning effort should take the world's best off-road triathletes about 30 to 40 minutes to complete.

Κατάγεται από το Ξυλόκαστρο Κορινθίας και ζει μόνιμα στην Πάτρα. Συμμετείχε στην συντακτική ομάδα του Adventure Zone από το 2009, ενώ μαζί με τον Τάκη Τσογκαράκη ίδρυσαν και "τρέχουν" το Advendure.  Το τρέξιμο στα μονοπάτια των βουνών και η μεταφορά εικόνων και συναισθημάτων μέσα από τα άρθρα του αποτελεί αναπόσπαστο κομμάτι της ζωής του. Παθιάζεται με τους αγώνες ορεινού τρεξίματος, υπεραντοχής και  περιπέτειας. Έχει πολλές συμμετοχές και διακρίσεις σε αγώνες ορεινού τρεξίματος όλων των αποστάσεων, με έμφαση στους αγώνες ultra trail.  Θεωρεί ότι το τρέξιμο και η πεζοπορία στη φύση είναι μια εσωτερική ανάγκη του ανθρώπου, μας φέρνει πιο κοντά σε αυτήν και μας κάνει να αγαπήσουμε περισσότερο το περιβάλλον.
