the world champs — ULTRA X MEXICO 2019 QUALIFIERS

From 2021, Ultra X will host the Multi-Stage Ultra World Cham­pi­on­ships — a 250km, 5 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 Mex­ico 2019 was the third and final qual­i­fy­ing event of this year (there will be three more next year) and it was a truly unfor­get­table week in the canyons. Com­pet­it­ors from 12 dif­fer­ent coun­tries com­peted against a group of loc­al run­ners from the legendary Tarahu­mara tribe to determ­ine who would become the King and Queen of the Cop­per Canyon. It was a closely fought battle from start to fin­ish with just a few minutes sep­ar­at­ing the stage win­ners each day. The final res­ults can be found here.
