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.
~ Race entry at accessible prices.
