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 Sri Lanka 2019 was the first of our qualifying events and it was an absolute belter! Check out the final results.
