Sri Lanka

Ultra X Sri Lanka takes place in a coun­try nick­named ‘The pearl of the Indi­an Ocean’. Sri Lanka is a beau­ti­ful coun­try with an incred­ibly diverse cul­ture. The course will take com­pet­it­ors through tea plant­a­tions and 10,000 year old rain­forests, down rush­ing rivers (watch out for the water­falls) and onto white sandy beaches. Dur­ing this week com­pet­it­ors will get to exper­i­ence in full the place, the people and the beauty of this icon­ic coun­try, steeped in his­tory and col­our.

Import­ant Inform­a­tion

The liv­ing accom­mod­a­tion con­sists of a gazebo shared by 6–15 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 not have to carry their food and oth­er gear.

This will be trans­por­ted by the race organ­isers for you in between camps. A com­pet­it­ors full bag­gage must not weigh more than 15 kgs.

You will need to be self suf­fi­cient from Sunday 22nd March to lunch­time on Fri­day 27th.

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

 

I think I spent more time won­der­ing why I had signed up for a race like this than actu­ally enjoy­ing it. That said, it took about 5 minutes before I was look­ing for the next one. They are great adven­tures and Sri Lanka is call­ing my name!
