Bolivia

Ultra X Bolivia takes par­ti­cipants through an ancient Inca trail that starts at 4000 metres above sea level at the vil­lage of Apo­lob­amba in the South Amer­ic­an Andes. The course will fin­ish at just 500 metres above sea level in the small town of Rur­renabaque based on the Beni river, known as the gate­way to the rain­forest.

All Ultra X loc­a­tions are beau­ti­ful and remote but Ultra X Bolivia cer­tainly boasts some of the most spec­tac­u­lar and secluded scenery you may ever see. This is a truly wild multi-day ultra which takes place in a part of the world that you might oth­er­wise nev­er get to see.

Import­ant Inform­a­tion

The liv­ing accom­mod­a­tion con­sists of a biv­ou­ac or tent shared by between 2–8 com­pet­it­ors.

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 from Sunday mid­day to lunch­time on the final day of the race.

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

What I love about these Ultra X races is that they are a great way to see the wild­est corners of the earth. I loved Jordan and will be off to Bolivia soon. Bring it on!
