What’s the difference between the “Full and Sprint” off-road triathlons?
XTERRA Portland is part of the XTERRA America Tour and qualifies you for the XTERRA USA National Champs. Our XTERRA Portland Sprint race was added a few years ago to give people a choice to try a shorter option. Check out the Course Description of each race and pick the one that suits your ability. The swim has excellent support, bike course is great for all abilities, and trail run is fun and challenging.
