The Azores is an archipelago of 9 islands situated 1,000 miles into the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Portugal.

The islands were settled sporadically over a period of 200 years. The temperatures are mild year round and the vegetation and scenery is truly spectacular.

Ultra X Azores takes place on Sao Miguel (the biggest island), on the weekend of April 24-25th. Join us for the full 125km in two days or for the 50km event. This island will take your breath away.

2020 - What a year! Despite all the negatives, some great things happened.

In May, we committed to becoming a more sustainable organisation with our Sustainability Policy (link below if you haven't read it yet). Since then we have planted over 200 trees in the Southern Carpathians with our partners @Mossy.earth

How many should we aim for in 2021?

Introducing #RUNAROUNDTHEWORLDWITHKEV

WHAT: This New Year’s Eve, we are hosting our most ambitious community challenge ever. It’s so ambitious we have no idea if it’s possible and there is a strong possibility we could fail, but if we don’t try we’ll never know.


Here goes: The circumference of the earth is 24,901 miles and we want to run around it with you, our community, in one day*.

HOW: If we can get 1,000 of you to enter then we will all have to run/walk on average 24.9 miles each – almost a marathon. If we can get 2,000 of you then the average distance per runner becomes a much more manageable 12.45 miles. You get the gist.

WHEN: *The challenge begins when the first place on earth starts New Year’s Eve (Samoa) and ends when the last place on earth hits the New Year (Baker Islands in the Pacific). In GMT, this is 10:00 on Wednesday 30th December until 12:00 on Friday 1st January. We have 50 hours to cover 24,901 miles!

WHY: Kevin Webber is a great friend of ours. Last October, he took on and smashed Ultra X Jordan. He is a wonderful man and a constant beacon of light. He is also a terminal prostate cancer patient. December 21st is Kevin’s 365th consecutive day running which started with the Ultra X #holiday100 challenge last year. The run with Kev challenge gives everyone the opportunity to end one year and start another with a new goal that will take you on an amazing journey.

The challenge costs just £5 and all of the proceeds will go to the charity Prostate Cancer UK. If you’re keen to join us then we will need every ounce of your support to make this dream a reality

PLEASE help us make this happen by registering via this link - ultra-x.co/runaroundtheworldwithkev/
