JORDAN REGISTRATIONS OPEN
3–11th October 2020
Team: £890pp (team is 3 or more)
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.
24–34 Degrees C
Competitors should arrive into Amman on or before Saturday 3rd October 2020, where they will make their way to their accommodation for the night. Those that wish to stay in the race hotel will have the option to book this when registering for the race.
After introductions, briefings and kit checks on Sunday morning at the race hotel 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. The coaches will reach Amman around 1900 so those with Saturday evening flights should make sure to leave enough time to reach the airport.

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