This week we are going to be telling you a little bit about Ultra X Jordan, situated in the south of the country in the Wadi Rum desert.
Jordan was our first Ultra X race location and for that reason it holds a very special place in our hearts.
Leaving aside the true beauty of the place, the desert is steeped in history. Wadi Rum may be best known for its connection with British officer T. E. Lawrence aka Lawrence of Arabia, who passed through several times during the Arab Revolt of 1917–18.
Our race course, which changes slightly every year will take participants on a grand tour of Wadi Rum’s protected region. You’ll pass through canyons, dried up riverbeds and occasionally over big dunes (including, on Stage 4, a stretch through the very canyon Lawrence was said to have hidden out in!).
Remember, thanks to our payment plan system you can register for Jordan and pay your registration fee monthly over the course of 5 months. This goes some way in making the best value multi-stage ultramarathon on the planet, even more affordable.
