Tak­ing on a multi-day ultra in a far flung corner of the earth is one of the greatest exper­i­ences in the world. The sense of achieve­ment you feel after grind­ing through each day, and the camarader­ie you build with your fel­low com­pet­it­ors in a remote desert, jungle or moun­tain camp is what makes com­pet­ing in the glob­al Ultra X series truly unique.

Formed from the Wadi Rum Ultra in Jordan, Ultra X was cre­ated by Jam­ie Sparks and Sam Heward with the aim of mak­ing multi-day racing access­ible to all.

Ultra X aims to be the first multi-stage ultramara­thon series of its kind.
