Ultra X 50 Rwanda 2025

Ultra X 50 Rwanda is a single-stage ultra marathon that takes place around northern Rwanda and the districts of Burera and Musanze.

The race takes place near the Volcanoes National Park (where the famous mountain gorillas are based) and the twin lakes; Lake Ruhondo and Lake Burera. This course will take you on a sensory journey, over gentle hills and valleys, through traditional coffee and banana fields with lush, jungle like vegetation and over a stunning lake peninsula. Runners will enjoy all of this whilst taking in the incredible backdrop of Rwanda’s five iconic volcanoes; Mt Muhabura, Mt Sabyinyo, Mt Karisimbi, Mt Bisoke and Mt Gahinga whilst being supported by the wonderful local population.
