The Ultra X Slovenia is the pinnacle of multi-stage Ultra X racing. It offers a 5 stage 220km race, a 2 stage 110km race and a single stage 50km race.
The course is located in western Slovenia, nestled between the towering Julian Alps to the north and the Adriatic coast to the south. Competitors travel south from the rocky mountain trails of Soca Valley and the southern Julian Alps to the vine-laden landscapes and high plateaus of Vipava Valley.
To qualify for the 5 stage event, the World Championships, you must have completed any Ultra X ultra marathon event. There are no qualifying criteria for the 110 or 50 events.
What happens when you register
Once you have registered for a race;
You will be sent an email inviting you to a call with a member of our team. This is by no means mandatory but it will allow you to ask us any questions you may have regarding the event, training, food, equipment and anything else at all. We’re a really friendly bunch and love getting to know our runners before we meet you in person.
You will be asked if you would like to be added to the competitor Facebook and Whatsapp groups. Of course you do not have to but they are a great way to get to know your fellow competitors before you reach the start line.
You will be invited to a number of short video calls where we’ll go through kit/equipment, food and pre-event preparation. You’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions you like.
We have some of the most relaxed cut-offs in the industry. To us, it’s not about what time you get, it’s the adventure you have along the way. On average you will have between 2hrs 30 mins to complete each 10km (in-between checkpoints). Exact race cut-offs can be found in the race information pack.
If you don’t finish
In the scenario that you cannot finish a stage at one of our events, you will be offered entry into the following edition of the race at half price. You will not receive a finishers medal or official result.
