Our Vis­ion — The world’s biggest ultramara­thon series

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.

Our events bring people to untouched parts of the world, yet we con­stantly strive to make as little impact on the
