ultra x sri lanka

Ultra X Sri Lanka takes place in a coun­try nick­named “The Pearl of the Indi­an Ocean”.

Sri Lanka is a beau­ti­ful place with an incred­ibly diverse cul­ture. The course takes com­pet­it­ors past tea plant­a­tions and sug­ar factor­ies, through 10,000 year old rain­forests, along stun­ning coun­tryside trails, and down rush­ing rivers. Dur­ing this unfor­get­table week, com­pet­it­ors will get to exper­i­ence the place, the people, and the beauty of this icon­ic coun­try, which is steeped in rich his­tory and vibrant col­our.

Com­pet­it­ors should arrive in Negombo on or before Sat­urday 20th March, where they will trans­fer to their accom­mod­a­tion in the city. Those that wish to stay in the race hotel will have the option to book this when regis­ter­ing.

On Sat­urday morn­ing, all com­pet­it­ors are trans­ferred back to Negombo, stop­ping off for food in Rat­napura and Avis­sawella. For those with Sat­urday even­ing flights, we will arrive in Negombo at approx­im­ately at 18:00.


All good things must come to an end! Par­ti­cipants are free to trans­fer to the air­port on Sunday for return flights, or to begin their well deserved hol­i­day. For those stay­ing in coun­try, we recom­mend book­ing with a loc­al tour com­pany — please get in touch for recom­mend­a­tions.

 Please see the Race Inform­a­tion Pack and Kit List below for all neces­sary details about the race.

“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)
