XTERRA LAUNCHES BRAND NEW OHIO TRAIL SERIES
RACE #1 IN THE 2010 XTERRA OHIO TRAIL RUN SERIES
March 24, 2010 – XTERRA is making its way back to the Midwest with the brand new, action-packed XTERRA Ohio Trail Run Series kicking off April 24th at Wooster’s Vulture’s Knob. The XTERRA Vulture’s Knob 15-kilometer Trail Run is arguably the most challenging of the five race series as it takes place on one of the area’s most infamous, technical mountain bike courses and features 1,000 feet of climbing.
For those not familiar with the series, XTERRA is known for its challenging, off-road, adventure trail runs, and the XTERRA Vulture’s Knob will be no exception. The course weaves its way through 125 acres along the majestic Killbuck River in Wooster’s rolling hills. The venue features some of the most challenging single track and unique manmade outdoor features the area has to offer, so this one event runners of all levels will not want to miss.
As the first of five races in the 2010 XTERRA Ohio Trail Run Series, this will be the earliest chance for the top fifteen runners in each age group to accumulate points toward their season totals. At the end of the series, a runner’s best four scores will count, and those with the highest scores will be crowned XTERRA Regional Champions and receive free entry into the XTERRA Trail Running National Championship on September 18th in the beautiful trail running mecca of Bend, Oregon.
From there, all runners are invited to race at the December 5th XTERRA Trail Running World Championship on the spectacular Hawaiian island of Oahu. The event takes place at the very location where major productions like Jurassic Park, Godzilla and LOST have been filmed and marks the dramatic end of the 2010 XTERRA Trail Run season.
