Join Centre of the Universe Ultra

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 50 KM 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 is 50KM from Hackney. You creating the start means that you 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.

Again to be Covid friendly you can run solo or in a team of two.

As with all Camino races, there will exceptional one-off designed trophies 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.
