Ultra X mexico 2019 — The race film
In November 2019, a group of runners headed to the Mexican state of Chihuahua to race in the inaugural Ultra X Mexico. The 250km, 5 day ultra marathon took runners from the magic town of Creel to the magic town of Batopilas, deep in the Copper Canyons.
It was an incredibly special event, set on the same trails as the famous Caballo Blanco race featured in the book Born to Run and did not follow the script many were expecting…
The 2020 edition will take place between the 7th and 14th November and is limited to 70 participants. Registration is now open and you can find out more by following the link below.
