Buffalo, NY — Score This!!!, Inc. has collaborated with XTERRA to add two off-road triathlons to its long list of multisport events for this year. The first annual XTRERRA EPIC ASP and XTERRA ASP will be held in Red House Area of Allegany State Park in Salamanca, N.Y., on Sept. 28, 2013.
Allegany State Park Manager Gary Quattrone said, “We are excited that Score This!!! thought of Allegany for this new venture. This off-road event seems tailor made for Allegany State Park. It utilizes the natural landscapes and encompasses some of our most exciting and popular activities. It will be exciting to see the athletes come and take the Allegany State Park challenge.”
These unique new races for the area include both individual and relay events for each distance, providing off road excitement for the seasoned and the beginner athlete. The XTERRA ASP includes a 0.6-mile swim, 15-mile bike, and a 4.5-mile run, and the longer XTERRA EPIC ASP consists of a 1.2-mile swim, 36-mile bike and a 9.5-mile run.
“Score This!!! is excited to partner with XTERRA to bring this worldwide recognized race series to western New York,” stated Rich Clark, VP of Score This!!!. “Not only will there be the traditional XTERRA distance, but this event will also feature the XTERRA EPIC distance which is equivalent to the half iron distance, but off-road. This course not only features rolling terrain, but also a beautiful fall foliage spectacle.”
XTERRA Managing Director Dave Nicholas said, “Knowing the great mountain biking and beautiful lakes and trails in the area, I think local athletes will have one of the best experiences in the country. We’re looking at his event becoming one of the finest in the U.S.”
XTERRA is back with year 13 of the America Tour, the nation’s premier off-road tri series designed to provide age group athletes with a bona-fide championship to compete for within their geographic region.
At the end of the regular season, the top performers in each of seven regions are invited to compete against other athletes their same age — but from different regions — at the National Championship in Utah on Sept. 22, 2013. The XTERRA World Championship will be held in Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii, on Oct. 27, 2013.
