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 takes com­pet­it­ors past tea plant­a­tions, through 10,000 year old rain­forests and down rush­ing rivers. Dur­ing this unfor­get­table week, com­pet­it­ors will get to exper­i­ence in full the place, the people, and the beauty of this icon­ic coun­try, steeped in his­tory and col­our.

Com­pet­it­ors will arrive in the cap­it­al Colombo on Sat­urday March 21st where they will trans­fer them­selves to their hotel for the night. We recom­mend stay­ing in the offi­cial race hotel which can be reserved when you enter the event.


After intro­duc­tions, brief­ings and kit checks, every­one is trans­por­ted to camp at the start line of stage 1. Here you will go over your final checks and settle into your wild sur­round­ings.

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. Bag­gage restric­tions can be found in the inform­a­tion pack.

The below inform­a­tion pack con­tains all the neces­sary details regard­ing the race.


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!” — Sam Barkham

There is magic at a multi-stage race and this magic comes from the people. Not only the run­ners, but the organ­isers, volun­teers and the loc­al people of the unique land­scape you are run­ning through. A multi-stage race brings out a raw­ness in people that there is no hid­ing from; we see each oth­er at our best, at our worst and everything in between, and some­how this devel­ops such strong bonds and friend­ships are forged for life.” — Lucja Leonard (Aus­tralia)

This was the most bru­tal and chal­len­ging thing I have ever com­pleted, and I would do it again.” — Jacques Pot­gi­eter (South Africa)

“I can’t say enough about this race. It has been amaz­ing, inter­est­ing, bru­tal, and beau­ti­ful” — Edson Kumb­wamba (Malawi)
