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).
Ultra X Sri Lanka 2022 was the opening race of this season and it did not disapoint. A huge thank you to all of the inspiring runners who made it a week to remember. You can view the final results here.
Congratulations to the below who have earned qualification to the Ultra X World Championships 2022.
