XTRI24 xtreme triathlonAfter only its inaugural year, the 2013 XTRI24 Xtreme Triathlon in the United Kingdom has been cancelled by Endurancelife due to low registration numbers this year, even after selling out last year.

The event took the standard long distance triathlon format and turned it up a notch. It featured a hybrid blend on the standard triathlon disciplines, with challenging off-road terrain, spectacular landscapes and a twenty four hour time limit. An epic endurance challenges that gained a reputation as one of the toughest races out there.

IMPORTANT NEWS: XTRI24 UK 2013 CANCELLED

Due to the low number of registrations for the event, we have made the difficult decision to cancel XTRI24 2013.

We are extremely sorry for any inconvenience caused and are aware of how disappointing this decision will be for everyone.

The inaugural event in summer 2012 was a massive success which sold out well in advance, so it is with great surprise and disappointment that as of January 2013 we only have 25 registered participants for the second edition. If this was a logistically smaller event then we would continue to deliver it to completion. However, the scale and scope of the organisation needed to deliver the XTRI24 is substantial and requires a considerably greater level of participation.

With the event now under 6 months away we have decided to make a call. We trust that this leaves you time to arrange and focus on another challenge for 2013 and we hope that you will respect our decision for calling this in good time.

Full refunds have been made to you today, back to the original payment card (please note these may take 24hrs to show in your bank). You do not need to do anything further.

We are hosting the Horseman Extreme Triathlon in September, which has significantly passed minimum fill levels. So, if you are looking for a 2013 challenge we warmly invite you to consider HXTRI - Horseman Xtreme Triathlon as an option.

We have tried to contact you today by phone. If we have not been able to speak with you, we welcome you to call us on: +44(0)1548 853524.
