The XTERRA Japan Championship race is confirmed to return to Lake Kanayama in Hokkaido on Saturday, September 3, 2016.

XTERRA Japan will be the third scoring race in the 2016-2017 XTERRA Asia-Pacific Tour, award $7,500 USD in prize money equally to the top five elite men and women, and distribute 25 qualifying spots into the 2016 XTERRA World Championship in Maui to the top amateurs in each division.

The race combines a 1,200-meter swim with a 24-kilometer mountain bike and 10K trail run. Last year Courtney Atkinson and Mieko Carey took the titles.
