the world champs — ULTRA X JORDAN 2019 QUALIFIERS

From 2021, Ultra X will host the Multi-Stage Ultra World Cham­pi­on­ships — a 250km, 5 day race between the greatest multi-stage ultra run­ners in the world. Tak­ing place every two years, the event will bring togeth­er the cur­rent best per­formers, each of whom must qual­i­fy for entry by com­pet­ing in oth­er Ultra X races (see qual­i­fic­a­tion rules). The first World Cham­pi­on­ships will be held in the sum­mer of 2021 with the loc­a­tion and prize pot to be announced soon.

Ultra X Jordan 2019 was the second of our qual­i­fy­ing events and it was anoth­er unfor­get­table week in the desert. It was one of the closest races we’ve ever had, with the podi­um pos­i­tions and age group qual­i­fy­ing slots being hotly con­tested all week. The final res­ults can be found here.

Salameh Al Aqra and Alise Miksta had already con­firmed their place before Ultra X Jordan 2019 and so the above legends join the 20 oth­ers who’ve already qual­i­fied from Ultra X Sri Lanka 2019 and pre­vi­ous edi­tions of Wadi Rum Ultra, the ori­gin­al race from which this glob­al multi-stage series was foun­ded. The ques­tion is, who will be join­ing them from Ultra X Mex­ico 2019?!
