Q: How do I register?
A: You must apply to this race to see if you meet our qualifications. If you are selected we will let you know how to register.
Q: This is an XTERRA race, so is it a qualifier?
A: No, it is not. Since it is the only one of its kind, it is a stand-alone XTERRA event. For now!
Q: What are the distances?
A: Swim: 750m, Bike: 8 miles, Run: 2.5miles
Q: When is the race?
A: Thursday, June 6, 2019 at 7:30PM.
Q: Where is the race?
A: At Fool Hollow Lake in Show Low, AZ - where the rest of our races take place.
Q: Why are you having this race on a Thursday night?
A: We are putting on 15 other races over the weekend and this is when our team of volunteers could make it happen.
Q: How much is the race?
A: $75 - you get a special shirt, and if you finish, you get a unique medal and bragging rights for the rest of your life that you were one of the first people ever on the entire planet to do a night-time triathlon.
Q: Do I get XTERRA points?
A: No. This is an XTERRA-branded race but it is not included in the points series; however, our standard XTERRA on Sunday, June 9th is in the points series.
Q: If I am selected for the race do I need to bring lights?
A: Yes, you need lights for the bike and run.
Q: Why are the distances what they are?
A: Fool Hollow Lake is an Arizona State Park and they have only allowed us a 2-hour window to make this race happen. These distances, along with our qualifying criteria, will accomplish this task.
