Taking on a multi-day ultra in a far flung corner of the earth is one of the greatest experiences someone can do. The sense of achievement you feel after grinding through each day, and the camaraderie that you build with your fellow competitors in a desert, jungle or mountain camp makes this series truly unique.
Formed out of 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-day ultramarathon series of its kind.
Race entry at accessible prices.
A quick and simple registration process.
A global series of trail races with a set format culminating in a World Championships.
A community and a club for all.
Every two years from 2021 the Ultra X World Championships will take place, competitors must qualify for this event by gaining points in other Ultra X races.
The ultra x values
Environment as possible.
Experience the best possible one.
Extreme is only a mindset. Reaching the highest degree — the furthest point from the centre, from your comfort zone.
To be beyond exceptional
We are the first timers, the seasoned endurance athletes and the elite ultra runners. We compete against the very best in the world, constantly challenging ourselves to push further and harder than ever before, across the most unforgiving environments. We push the boundaries of what is possible in multi-day events, exploring new locations and helping create the most unforgettable memories.
Each of our events are meticulously planned to deliver the best possible experience. And wherever our adventures lead us to, the only marks we leave behind are in the minds of our competitors.
Our journey to the finish line may be an individual one, but we’re a community that supports and encourages one another to achieve the impossible. Making friends for life. Together, we see the world from the most awe-inspiring places that few others dare to tread.
