Ultra X Azores is a 125 km 2 day race in the amazing Azores Islands, situated 1,000 miles due west of the coast of Portugal.
Ultra X Azores takes place on the island of Sao Miguel, nicknamed “the Green Island”. It is one of the nine volcanic islands based out in the Mid Atlantic. Governed by Portugal, this wild and remote archipelago is characterised by dramatic landscapes, fishing villages and green pastures.
The climate of the Azores is very mild for such a northerly location, due to the marine influence, temperatures remain around 20c all year-round.
