New format of XTERRA racing.


Swim 2x200m - Mountain bike 4x2km - Trail run 2 × 1.5km

After the success of the world premiere of XTERRA \Short Track in Prachatice (Czech Republic) last year, XTERRA ITALY will be hosting the inaugural weekend dedicated exclusively to  XTERRA SHORT TRACK in Molveno on the 2nd and 3rd of October 2020. Be ready for some fast, adrenaline fueled off road triathlon racing.

XTERRA SHORT TRACK Molveno will have two phases; trial qualifications in the morning followed by the finals in the afternoon. (25 men and 20 women racing separately)

The time trial qualifications will take place on a reduced circuit (200m, 4km, 1.5km) with athletes starting 15 seconds apart.

The first 25 Men and first 20 women will qualify for the final. This is an OPEN race which allows elite and age group athletes to qualify for the ELITE final!

the next 25 Male AGE GROUP, and 20 Female AGE GROUP athletes, will qualify for the AG final. Elite registered athletes do not qualify hence there will be a roll down through the AGE GROUP rankings to fill the 25 men’s and 20 women’s race slots. Thus, no Elite registered XTERRA athletes will race in the AGE GROUP final. Again, men and women will race separately.

200m swim, 4km MTB, 1.5km run.
Elite / Age Group: 400m swim (2 x 200m),  8km MTB (4x2km), 3Km run (2x1.5km).
Youth (14-17 years old) and VIP’s: 200m swim, 4km MTB (2x 2km) and 1.5km (1 lap) run.

Final races will have a mass start. Any athlete that is lapped is automatically eliminated and once passed by the leader will be asked to withdraw.

The course next to Lake Molveno will be made up of short laps, athletes will be negotiating some natural and artificial technical sections or obstacles.

Our goal is to present an exciting racing opportunity for our athletes and with live coverage on big screens,  provide an action packed viewing experience for spectators

$ 6000 prize pot for the Elite races.


Two short laps of 200 meters broken up by an Australian exit (Short beach run before diving into the lake for the second lap). Spectators will be able to follow the swim and see their athletes at all times.


A short twisty, technical 2km lap around the lake. (Finals: 2Km x 4, Youth/VIP 2km x 1). Athletes will negotiate rock gardens, jumps, ramps, climbs and drops, so expect a technical challenge! After each lap, competitors will pass through the race village packed with spectators. Note that the bike loop have an A and easier B line at technical sections making the course accessible to everybody.


Short and torturous, with tight turns requiring continuous acceleration.  (Finals: 1.5Km x 2, Youth/VIP 1.5km x 1).

Come and experience XTERRA SHORT TRACK.  Fast, technical racing with continuous action, great fun for athletes and spectators. This event provides opportunity AGE GROUP athletes to compete with the strongest Elite athletes.

Molveno is a small town 40 kilometres from Trento with a population of 1000. Located on the shores of the enchanting lake that goes by the same name, surrounded by the Brenta Dolomites, nessled in the Adamello-Brenta Nature Park. In 2019, Lake Molveno won the title of most beautiful lake in Italy for the sixth time, awarded by the Legambiente and Touring Club Italiano, while the town itself has been awarded the Orange Flag.

What to do besides participating in XTERRA Short Track

If you love sports and leisure, Molveno is the place for you: in the summer you can try windsurfing on the lake, a game of tennis, or an outing by boat or pedalo. Not to mention paragliding, canoeing, stand up paddling, swimming in an Olympic swimming pool, or a walk along the shores of the lake. If, on the other hand, you love hiking or mountain biking, you can follow the Dolomiti di Brenta Trek and Dolomiti di Brenta Bike routes, which will lead you to the heart of the Brenta Dolomites, a UNESCO world heritage site. And then, if you love spending your days at high altitude, from the town, the new cablecar will take you comfortably to the Pradel plateau, where you can find the adventure trails of the Forest Park, which the children will adore.

In winter, on the other hand, you can go skiing in the Fai della Paganella district, or follow the paths of the Adamello Brenta Nature Park with snowshoes.

If, on the other hand, you prefer relaxing, in addition to enjoying the quiet of the large lakeside beach, all year round you can enjoy walks to the mountain dairies or mountain huts and taste the specialities of Trentino, with a view over the Brenta Dolomites, which turn pink at dawn and dusk.
How to get there

If you are travelling by car from the south, on motorway A22 del Brennero, you exit at Trento Nord and then continue towards Mezzolombardo. You then follow the directions for Fai della Paganella, Andalo and Molveno (you will arrive after 25 kilometres). If you are arriving from the north, on the A22 exit at San Michele all’Adige and follow directions for Mezzolombardo, then Fai della Paganella, Andalo and Molveno for 25 kilometres. If you are travelling by bus, you can reach Mezzocorona from Trento on line 751, and from here you can reach Lake Molveno with line 611. But there are also other lines that can get you to Molveno: on the Trentino Trasporti website you will find more precise times and routes. Finally, if you prefer travelling by train, you can reach Trento and take the “Trento-Malè” train to Mezzolombardo, and from here you can travel to Molveno by bus. Nearest airports : Verona Aeroporto Valerio Catullo 1.30h from Molveno.
