From 2022, 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).
