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, steeped in rich his­tory and vibrant col­our. 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 exper­i­ence the place, the people, and the beauty of this icon­ic coun­try in full.

What oth­ers say

“This was the most bru­tal and chal­len­ging thing I have ever com­pleted, and I would do it again.Jacques Pot­gi­eter

South Africa

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

I can’t say enough about this race. It has been amaz­ing, inter­est­ing, bru­tal, and beau­ti­ful.
