Jordan

Ultra X Jordan (pre­vi­ously the Wadi Rum Ultra) takes place in the land of Lawrence of Ara­bia. The mys­tic­al desert course takes com­pet­it­ors past his­tor­ic sites, into dra­mat­ic wadis and over mag­ni­fi­cent sand dunes.

Wadi Rum’s nick­name is ‘The Val­ley of the Moon’ and you quickly will see why. Its land­scape, char­ac­ter­ised by unique tower­ing rock form­a­tions, will truly blow you away, as will the chal­lenge. As loc­a­tions go, this place is unri­valled in its beauty.

Sat­urday

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.

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.” — Tim Gard­ner

I can hon­estly say this was a totally life chan­ging exper­i­ence. From the incred­ible crew of med­ics and Osteo­paths to the crack­ing camarader­ie exper­i­enced every night at camp. No shame was spared, and all lim­its were broken (in every single sense). Incred­ible friend­ships formed and many many memor­ies made. For someone with so many words, I’m not sure I’ll ever find enough to explain this adven­ture. Team Ultra X, you’re bloody epic, and I can­not thank you enough (even with the extra kms added to the 12 hour run­ning day). Wadi Rum, over and out ” — Han­nah “Twice the Health” (UK)

This was the best week of my life” — Rahil (UK)
