Ultra X Wales

Ultra X 110 & 50 Wales takes place in and around southern Snowdonia in western Wales.

An Ultra X race is the ultimate test of preparation. A participant who has planned and trained well will be a successful one. It is just as important that participants calculate their water, electrolyte and food requirements, as it is their pacing, during this two-day adventure. This is not a self-supported race. Participants only need
to carry their daily provisions of mandatory safety equipment, nutrition and hydration.

Race holdalls are held at the campsite and are available for competitors before and after each stage. Fully stocked aid stations are provided approximately 10km apart


Ultra X Wales is a multi-stage ultra-marathon that takes place over two days around southern Snowdonia in western Wales. It offers two races; Ultra X 110 Wales and Ultra X 50 Wales. The event is a two-stage race taking place on Saturday and Sunday, whilst the 50 event is a single-stage race taking place on the Sunday, following the same route but starting 1 hour later.

The course offers participants two looped courses starting and finishing in the event campsite, following a number of famous trails and stunning ridgelines, bagging several of the highest peaks in South Snowdonia and covering a total distance of 110km (68 miles).

There are two stages, Saturday and Sunday. The first stage is 60km and will commence at 07:00. The second stage is 50km and will commence at 07:00 too. There are checkpoints stationed approximately 10km apart where competitors can access water, shelter, food and, if necessary, medical support.

Competitors will camp at Race HQ at Bwlchgwyn Farm in Fairbourne on Friday and Saturday nights, where they will have access to therapist treatment, medical care and hot water. If competitors would like to camp on Sunday night this should be organised upon registration. On Saturday night, competitors will camp in the same location where they can enjoy osteopathy/physiotherapy treatment, medical care and hot water.

Ultra X Wales races are both UTMB® Index Races, in the 100k and 50k categories respectively.
