As part of its ongoing partnership with XTERRA, ICARUS Sports will provide production and distribution services for XTERRA Belgium on 8 June 2019.
Combining sports and lifestyle, XTERRA Is the world’s premier off-road triathlon series, providing competition for professionals and amateurs staged in some of the world’s most stunning natural environments. Athletes compete across open water and off-road terrain, pitching themselves against the elements in feats of endurance and adventure.
Hosted in the beautiful old town of Namur, with the famous citadel as the heart of the race action, athletes will swim around the island in the middle of the River Meuse, before the bike ride routes through the forest, taking on a total climb of 1,100m+ across single tracks, mud, technical rocky, flat and fast stages. The final run stage will throw up cobble stones, bridges, stairs and tunnels.
New for 2019 is the XTERRA Benelux Challenge, offering athletes three events – XTERRA Belgium, XTERRA Netherlands and XTERRA Luxembourg – with cumulative points awarding the overall title of XTERRA Benelux Champion.
ICARUS Sports will produce footage for TV news, three 1 minute videos for social media, a 2 minute highlights video and a post-event 22 minute documentary, and deliver worldwide distribution reaching over 160 nations.
“We are really happy to be returning to the massively popular XTERRA Belgium for one more year,” commented Nick Dimitropoulos, ICARUS Sports Sales Director. “It is going to be another exciting event and our team is ready for it.”
