Xterra is the most recognised international cross triathlon challenge and features top professionals and amateurs, as well as beginners racing to challenge their own limits. Organised by Hellfire Events in Malta, this Mediterranean gem of an event is a tough challenge, featuring a 1km Sea Swim in Golden Bay, a 30km spectacular MTB course along seaside cliffs and an 11km run across one of Malta’s most scenic spots.
The Gozo Trail 55km and 21km are arguably Malta’s most scenic run races, hugging the perimiter of the small island of Gozo, along breathtaking cliffs, green valleys and rocky outcrops. Whilst it only has an elevation gain of 1500m over the course of the 55km and worth 1 UTMB point, it has some technical parts which slow down the runners considerably. The cut-off times are lenient to encourage all levels of runners, as in true Hellfire spirit, taking on this challenge is all about Challenging Yourself! There is also a Mountain Bike Challenge for cycling enthusiasts.
