XTERRA New Caledonia

A race in Paradise, May 15th, 2021: XTERRA in New Caledonia

A trail which allows you to enjoy magnificent views, beautiful beaches and absolutely fantastic sunsets. And because it is an XTERRA edition, you will be able to see all of this beauty on a course mixing mountain climbs and technical passages on 22 kilometers, as well as 2 shorter circuits (of 12 and 7 kilometers) and a special path (1 kilometer) dedicated to children. XTERRA New Caledonia race will take place on “la Grande Terre” [New Caledonia’s main land], in the city of Païta, located 20 kilometers away from the capital, Noumea, in the south of New Caledonia.

New Caledonia has a tropical climate, similar to Hawaii’s one, the Grande Terre is not, however, a volcanic island. Millions of years ago, the island separated from the Australian coast, making it the mother of many endemic species, both in terms of fauna and flora.

"The edition of XTERRA in New Caledonia will give you the chance to make one of the most magnificent races you have ever seen in a part of the world as rare as splendid" said Nordine BENFODDA, organizer of the XTERRA edition in New Caledonia, before adding that the race will be the celebration of sport, community and nature.
