Hispaman Xtreme 2019 to offer four qualifying slots for Norseman

Hispaman Xtreme Triathlon will return on Saturday September 28th 2019

After welcoming athletes from 11 countries in its first edition, the organisers of the Hispaman Xtreme Triathlon (www.hxtri.com) has confirmed its inclusion in the the prestigious Xtri World Tour circuit. The event will be a qualifying race for the Xtri World Championship, which will take place at Norseman 2020.

The unique Spanish race will also give four direct slots for the mythical Norseman. In this way, the lucky ones will have the opportunity to access registration without going through the draw for the limited bib numbers of the Norwegian race.

Back to the roots

Inspired by the essence of triathlon, Hispaman Xtreme Triathlon goes back to the roots of the sport and the tradition of the lands it crosses. It is a demanding, long-distance triathlon to compete with oneself; an opportunity to share a life-enriching experience with triathletes from around the world.

The triathletes, always accompanied by their supporters, have to complete a 3.8 km swimming circuit at dawn around the majestic Peñíscola’s Castle.

After the swimming, the cycling circuit ends in Culla after a 180 km course with 3,500 meters of cumulative elevation gain. Finally, the last obstacle is the race course: a mountain marathon (42 km) with about 2,000 meters of elevation gain that crosses the Natural Park of Penyagolosa until reaching the finish line in Vistabella del Maestrat.
