We review recent results from the SHARC Survey for distant X-ray clusters of galaxies. We first discuss the SHARC South project which finds no evidence for evolution in the faint end of the X-ray cluster luminosity function out to a redshift of z ≲ 0.7. We then give an overview of the Bright SHARC project; this project will provide an independent measurement of the evolution of bright (Lx[0.5 - 2keV] > 3 × 1044 erg s-1) X-ray clusters and allow us to put strong constraints on the value of Ω0.
