“Mr. XTERRA” and SwimRun Standout Marcus Barton

Marcus Barton has made a quite a journey in the off-road triathlon scene. From training on a $50 used mountain bike before his first race to taking podiums at races all over the U.S. and abroad, he’s become known as a formidable opponent as well as a friendly face to veterans and newcomers alike.

He was named “Mr. XTERRA” in 2016 for exemplifying the values of community and volunteerism that off-road triathlon espouses.

Recently, he’s added SwimRun events to his already-busy XTERRA race calendar, and he wasted no time taking on the toughest races available, including Rockman and ÖTILLÖ.
