Centre of the Universe
Camino Ultra Limited - Hackney Wick, London
Our first event of 2021 will be the “Centre of the Universe 50 km” - a totally unique ultramarathon where you decide the start point (as long as it is outside of a designated zone) and you finish up at the "Centre of the Universe" otherwise know as Hackney Wick in East London.
In Covid times we need to get inventive. Large gatherings at the start of ultra-events are difficult. If we keep having mini lockdowns then logistics need to be agile. This event has been set up so that as much of this as possible is taken care of.
We give you a state of the art Tracker (£20 to hire but part of the entry) and all the pre-logistical help you need to plan a start that will make a 50KM route from Hackney. You creating the start means that you are already free from others. We provide you with world-class nutrition from the ultramarathon team at KOMFuel (a box circa £20 in value) with enough gels/bars and electrolyte powder to get you to the finish.
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR START LOCATION:
Please check out our guest blog written by Camino Legend Mark Kerry: https://www.caminoultra.com/post/how-to-create-a-route-for-the-centre-of-the-universe-ultra
In the blog there is a section at the end that shows the 30KM radius map and how you can have fun plotting
Again to be Covid friendly you can run solo or in a team of two. Regular updates will be made here as lockdown eases.
As with all Camino races there will exceptional one-off designed prizes for the winners, locally sourced gems in the finisher bag and innovative partnerships with the likes of ReRun & TreesNot Tees.
So sign-up to some new ultramarathon magic.
