2014 XTERRA Saipan Championship Print E-mail

Hafa Adai!  Welcome to the 2014 XTERRA Saipan Championship presented by Taga, Inc.

Transition Setup/Body-Marking: Transition will open at 5:00 a.m. Saturday morning to place your gear and bicycles.  Athletes check in and numbering will take place at the finish line starting at 5:00 a.m.  You must have identification to take your bike/gear out of the transition area, show your body marked number or run number or give your run number to a friend or family member to claim your bike for you.

USA Triathlon: This Championship is sanctioned by USA Triathlon and all participants must either be current license holders or purchase a one-day license ($12).  You will not be given your participant packet without showing us your current USA TRI license and picture ID or purchasing a one day license at registration.  It's not that we don't trust you; we just don't trust you.

Results: Results will be posted on the notice board in the finish area as soon as they are available.  Results will be posted on the XTERRA Planet website on race night.  You can pick up your personal results at the finish line.

The Tropical Saipan Sun: Be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen.  Hydration is not optional. Take plenty of fluids on the race course.  Do NOT skimp - its better to stop and take a drink than to suffer from dehydration and a trip to Saipan's Commonwealth Health Center.   Drink...Drink...Drink!

Local Registration deadline is 5pm March 28. Anytime after that there is an additional $50 dollar late fee. ***No Race Day Registration***
