We are delighted to announce that for the 2020 Edition of the race we are partnering with SriLankan Airlines!
A statement from the airline;
“SriLankan Airlines, a member of the OneWorld alliance, considers it a privilege to be the airline partner of Ultra X.
This race complements our philosophy of positioning Sri Lanka as a location for endurance events. Sri Lanka is an emerging destination for fitness and wellness tourism and the airline considers Ultra X to be an ideal platform to take this message forward to the world.
Sri Lankan Airlines wishes the athletes all the best. Exciting times ahead.”
The top three male and female finishers, as well as Ultra X World Championships qualification, will be awarded a free flight from any SriLankan Airlines online point that flies directly into Colombo.
