Ultra X Azores takes place on the island of Sao Miguel, nick­named “the Green Island”. It is one of the nine vol­can­ic islands based out in the Mid Atlantic. Gov­erned by Por­tugal, this wild and remote archipelago is char­ac­ter­ised by dra­mat­ic land­scapes, fish­ing vil­lages and green pas­tures. The cli­mate of the Azores is very mild for such a north­erly loc­a­tion, due to the mar­ine influ­ence, tem­per­at­ures remain around 20c all year-round.

Import­ant Inform­a­tion

The liv­ing accom­mod­a­tion con­sists of a large gazebo which will sleep between 10–20 people.

For each stage com­pet­it­ors will have to carry essen­tial safety equip­ment (such as water bottles, gels, basic med­ic­al kits, a whistle etc.) in their ruck­sacks but unlike oth­er races they will only need to carry their daily race pro­vi­sions as lug­gage is trans­por­ted for com­pet­it­ors between camps.

Com­pet­it­ors will need to be self suf­fi­cient for the entirety of the race, except for water at check­points and hot water (for meals) at camp.

Run­ners must provide all their own food. Due to weight, dehyd­rated or freeze dried food is recom­men­ded but you may bring whatever you like!

I nev­er even knew where the Azores was when I put my depos­it down! It’s a tiny archipelago in the middle of the Atlantic! I can­not wait to go to this place. It sounds like Jur­as­sic Park.
