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.
13–24 Degrees C

“Ultra X created a way we could completely immerse ouselves into the canyon, the villages, people & competition. They did a great job setting an amazing point to point course, picking beautiful campsites, aid stations & world class medical support to include priceless free daily ortho/body work. I was really impressed.” – Jason Schlarb (USA)
