About Us

Born from the dream to help people explore the outdoors through trail running, the community of trail running in Egypt is transformed with the establishment of Ultra Ibex.

About Ultra Ibex

Ultra Ibex is a trail running and outdoor adventure events organizer based in Cairo. Born out of Wadi Ibex, Egypt’s first and only trail running team, Ultra Ibex is led and managed by leading ultra, endurance, and trail running athletes who already have international experiences to their names.

Ultra Ibex currently functions as a team of six and partners with other sports and environmental organizations in Egypt to host annual, occasional, and special outdoor sports events. The organization opened its doors in 2022. Since its opening, Ultra Ibex has been promoting trail running and raising environmental awareness locally and internationally.



Ultra Ibex views trail running as a way to improve one’s health, fitness, and well-being and the community’s environmental vitality. As such, we want to see our name as the leading organizer of outdoor events in the MEA (the Middle East and Africa ) region in the future, so we could have more power to attract and challenge people to try new experiences and achieve more than they thought they were capable of. At the same time, we also want to see Egypt as one of the top five global trail running destinations in the world.


Ultra Ibex aims to help the trail running community in every way it can, one step at a time, through local and international events. Our mission is to organize high-quality outdoor races, experiences, and challenges that attract local and international participation. We aim to grow our portfolio of offerings beyond trail and ultra running races and offer new exciting events and explore beautiful destinations in the future.
