Defending Their Titles
Third-time winners and defending champions Sam Osborne and Jacqui Allen give an emotional recap of the 2019 XTERRA Rotorua Festival.
The XTERRA Rotorua Festival is the biggest multisport event in New Zealand and the biggest XTERRA event held anywhere in the world.
XTERRA's focus is to inspire people to get out and be active in New Zealand's great outdoors. Since its inception, the XTERRA Rotorua Festival has grown to become the biggest XTERRA event in the world. Each year eight events are offered for competitors to choose from and are set in and around Rotorua’s Blue Lake and Whakarewarewa Forest. It is without question amongst the most beautiful scenery in New Zealand.
“Every year it kinda seems to get a whole lot harder …” - Sam Osborne, 2019
