Wel­come to the first of our half dis­tance races, Ultra X 125 Azores. This is one of the most spec­tac­u­lar island ultramara­thons on earth.

Situ­ated 1,000 miles into the Atlantic Ocean just off the coast of Por­tugal, this tiny archipelago of islands offers incred­ible trails along vol­ca­noes, through amaz­ing green val­leys and past stun­ning lagoons.

This is the ulti­mate week­end ultra.

This is the most beau­ti­ful desert race on earth. Wadi Rum’s nick­name is the “Val­ley of the Moon” and you will quickly see why.

You will pass over dunes, across dried up river beds and through his­tor­ic canyons, tak­ing in views like you’ve nev­er seen before. At night, you will sleep under a mil­lion stars without a cloud in sight.

Wel­come to the land of Lawrence of Ara­bia.

This is the toughest multi-stage ultra on earth. With 11,835 metres of elev­a­tion gain on tech­nic­al trails at an alti­tude of 2,300 metres, this race offers an unfor­get­table chal­lenge.

You will also have the chance to run with the loc­al Tarahu­mara Indi­ans, or Rarámuri, the ori­gin­al ultra run­ning tribe fea­tured in the book Born to Run.

Ultra X Mex­ico is unique. Good luck.

This wild course passes tea plant­a­tions, sug­ar factor­ies and rush­ing rivers. The loc­als will also cheer you through their vil­lages and, if you’re lucky, throw water over you and maybe even give you a sweet banana or two.
