XTERRA is booming in the Asia-Pacific region, and highlighting this growth is it’s Dwellingup debut — scheduled for 23 November, 2019. This premier event will take place in the picturesque Western Australian town of Dwellingup, just an hours drive south of Perth.
The inaugural XTERRA Dwellingup event will see participants swim, mountain bike and run around the breathtaking bushlands of Lane Poole Reserve.
XTERRA Dwellingup will feature two different distance races (Sprint and XTERRA distance) as well as three different trail run distances (5km, 10km, 21km) appealing to a wide range of ages and abilities. The Sprint, a popular distance for the weekend warrior to those in the XTERRA distance that are seeking to qualify for the XTERRA World Championship, to be held in Maui, Hawaii in 2020.
Triathlon team options are also available as part of the two-day festival.
The XTERRA team are keen to not only crown the next National Champion, but also to hand out the only Australian qualifying tickets for any athletes looking to compete at the XTERRA World Champs in Maui in 2020.
XTERRA Dwellingup is supported by local funding partners Mandurah and Peel Tourism Organisation, Royalties for Regions, Shire of Murray and City of Mandurah. The agreement with Elite Energy Events is a three-year arrangement that will see participants and spectators alike flock to the region for this exciting, globally branded adventure event. It is expected that the Western Australian communities of Dwellingup, Mandurah and surrounding areas will derive economic benefit from Event Tourism dollars of an estimated $924,336 direct spend annually.
