From 2021, Ultra X will host the Ultra X World Championships — a 250km, five day race between the greatest multi-stage ultra runners in the world. Taking place every two years, the event will bring together the current best performers, each of whom must qualify for entry by competing in other Ultra X races (see qualification rules). The first World Championships will be held in the summer of 2021 with the location and prize pot to be announced soon.

Ultra X Jordan 2019 was the second of our qualifying events and it was another unforgettable week in the desert. It was one of the closest races we’ve ever had, with the podium positions and age group qualifying slots being hotly contested all week. Check out the final results.
