Ultra X Jordan (pre­vi­ously the Wadi Rum Ultra) takes par­ti­cipants through the land of Lawrence of Ara­bia. The mys­tic­al course takes com­pet­it­ors through his­tor­ic sites, into dra­mat­ic Wadis and over mag­ni­fi­cent sand dunes.

Wadi Rum’s nick­name is ‘the val­ley of the moon’ and you will see why.

Its land­scape, char­ac­ter­ized by unique tower­ing rock form­a­tions will truly blow you away, as will the chal­lenge. As loc­a­tions go, this place is unrivaled in its beauty.

5 Days




24–34 Degrees C






Com­pet­it­ors will arrive into Amman on Sat­urday 5th Octo­ber, where they will make their way to the race hotel in the centre of the city for the night.


After intro­duc­tions, brief­ings and kit checks on Sunday morn­ing every­one is trans­por­ted to camp in the desert.











After the last stage on Fri­day the organ­isers host a big camp fire and BBQ for the last night in the desert. This will be your first taste on non-dehyd­rated food in a week! The prize giv­ing and awards cere­mony will also take place. It’s a spe­cial night for all present.


On Sat­urday morn­ing buses will take com­pet­it­ors to the lost city of Petra for the day. In the after­noon, coaches will drive com­pet­it­ors back to a hotel in Amman for the last night.


Par­ti­cipants will be free to trans­fer to the air­port for their return flights.

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.

You will need to be self suf­fi­cient from Sunday 6th Octo­ber until your depar­ture on 13th Octo­ber, with the excep­tion of an even­ing meal on the Fri­day even­ing after the race.

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


I’ve done a few ultras around the world but the beauty of Wadi Rum really sets it apart from the rest. The rock form­a­tions look like they have been care­fully sculp­ted by man, it’s impossible to believe they’re just the product of mil­lions of years of erosion.

At night the stars are incred­ible. It’s nice and cool in the early morn­ing but at mid­day depend­ing on where you are on the course, it feels like you’re on Mars. I loved this event.
