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
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.

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.
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.
