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.
18–24 Degrees C
After the last stage on Friday, the organisers host a big camp fire and BBQ in camp overlooking the Atlantic coastline. This will be competitors first taste of non-dehydrated food in a week! The prize giving and awards ceremony will also take place.

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.
Between those dates you must provide all your own food. Due to weight, dehydrated or freeze dried food is recommended.
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.
