The newly established XTERRA Trail Marathon Series has joined forces with the International Trail Running Association (ITRA) to provide athletes with ITRA Performance Index points, build upon the shared values of both organizations, and form a deeper connection with the worldwide trail running community.
“We respect the work ITRA has done over the last decade to raise the level of awareness and legitimacy for the sport of trail running and share their core values of authenticity and fair play,” said XTERRA World Tour President, Janet Clark.  “The inclusion of these events into the ITRA network connects our global XTERRA community with trail running enthusiasts around the world and provides wonderful new racing opportunities and experiences for them all.”
The new 9-event XTERRA Trail Marathon Series hosts events of various distances throughout the year across the U.S., European, and Asia-Pacific regions.  It kicked-off March 28, 2021 at Kenting National Park in Taiwan, and its next stop takes it to the award-winning trails at Oak Mountain State Park in Shelby County, Alabama on May 9, 2021. 
“XTERRA shares our values by practicing environmentally friendly events. We are delighted to support the XTERRA Marathon series and are committed to making ITRA’s services available to all races and runners around the world,” said Bob Crowley ITRA’s President.
