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.

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.

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

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)

I know that in the euphor­ia of fin­ish­ing every race, you think at the time it’s got to be the best one you’ve done. BUT, this genu­inely was” — Mar­ina Ranger (UK)

Ultra X Mex­ico was the best race I’ve ever done. I am so grate­ful for the oppor­tun­ity to exper­i­ence this won­der­ful event, of the like I had not exper­i­enced before”– Takak­uzo Kur­ose (Japan)
