Mexico Ultra X


Ultra X Mex­ico takes par­ti­cipants to the south­west­ern part of the state of Chi­hua­hua, the home of the ori­gin­al ultra-run­ners, the Tarahu­mara, and the spec­tac­u­lar moun­tain trails of the Cop­per Canyon as fam­ously writ­ten about in “Born to Run”.

The Tarahumara’s word for them­selves, Rara­muri, means “those who run fast”.

Com­pet­it­ors will have a chance to find out the truth of this for them­selves.

5 Days




13–24 Degrees C






Com­pet­it­ors will arrive into Chi­hua­hua on Sat­urday Novem­ber 2nd, where they will trans­fer into the city and arrive at the race HQ Hotel where they will stay for one night.


After intro­duc­tions, brief­ings and kit checks in the morn­ing every­one has a free after­noon to explore the “Magic Town” of Creel, before trans­port­a­tion to the first camp­site on the start line of the race.












Fri­day even­ing will be spent in the “Magic Town” of Batopilas where the Muni­cip­al­ity are put­ting on a very spe­cial after­party. Read all about it here. Sat­urday will be spent trav­el­ling back to Chi­hua­hua from Batopilas stop­ping off in Creel and La Posta.


Par­ti­cipants will trans­fer to the air­port on Sunday for return flights. For those with Sat­urday even­ing flights we will be return­ing to Chi­hua­hua by 1800.

Import­ant Inform­a­tion

The liv­ing accom­mod­a­tion con­sists of a biv­ou­ac or tent shared by between 8 and 15 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’ instead.

Com­pet­it­ors will need to be self suf­fi­cient from Sunday 3rd Novem­ber to lunch­time on the 8th Novem­ber

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

I have com­pleted in a num­ber of ultras, triath­lons and oth­er endur­ance chal­lenges but noth­ing com­pares to multi-stage racing in places I wouldn’t oth­er­wise explore. Ultra X’s Mex­ico race ticks all the boxes and I can’t wait to make it into a hol­i­day!

Bring on Mex­ico!
