Ultra X Jordan 2020 will be the 5th anniversary of this epic race and we think a good time for it to have it’s first ‘birth­day’. To cel­eb­rate, this Anniversary Edi­tion will be slightly dif­fer­ent…

Those join­ing us for the 2020 race can expect:

~ ‘The Long Stage’ to be the longest ever
(Fear not how­ever, it will ‘only’ be jump­ing a few km (well 5km to be exact) to around 73km in total ?).

~ Spe­cial com­mem­or­ative anniversary medals for all fin­ish­ers
(As always, those that fin­ish the event in under 30 hours will receive a white rib­bon, rather than a blue rib­bon).

The Anniversary Edi­tion will also be our biggest race ever, with over 150 of you tak­ing to the dunes of Wadi Rum, the land of Lawrence of Ara­bia.

Here is a brief run-through of the week for those unfa­mil­i­ar:

Itin­er­ary

Sat­urday 3rd Octo­ber: Land in Amman, Jordan
Sunday 4th Octo­ber: Race regis­tra­tion, kit checks and coach trans­fer down to the desert

Tues­day: 45km
Wed­nes­day: 73km

Sunday 11th Octo­ber: Flights depart home

For those look­ing to take on a clas­sic desert multi-stage ultramara­thon, Ultra X Jordan 2020 ‘Anniversary Edi­tion’ is abso­lutely the one for you. Oh, and it’s only £995 ?
