XTERRA Guam 2011 - An exciting race on the beautiful island of Guam

HYPR Events & Promotions, with the support of the Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB), presents the XTERRA Guam Off-Road Triathlon, on March 26, beginning at 7:00am at Port Authority Beach in Piti. 2011 marks the seventh year of the event but fifth year as part of the XTERRA America Tour - the world's largest and most successful off-road triathlon series.

The XTERRA Guam combines a 1km swim in the waters of Piti, followed by an 31m mountain bike up Nimitz Hill, into the technical terrain atop Mt. Alutom and then down to Mannengon Hills before returning to the transition point at Port Authority Beach. The race finishes with a memorable 8.2k trail run that has athletes navigating through jungle rivers and down slippery waterfalls. The run was described a “signature test of courage” by Inside Triathlon writer/photographer Tim Carlson in the May 2007 issue.


Pro triathlete Mieko Carey of the CNMI heads toward the finish.
