As London based ultra-marathon runners for well over a decade, David Bone & Darren Strachan aka Daznbone have been lucky enough to run in ultra distances all over the world. Whilst we hope to do this forever we also recognise that sometimes you “just want to race locally” and you ideally want less of the travel and logistics (both in time and in cost).
So our intention is to make it as easy as possible for you to start our events either inside of London’s orbital or by at least getting quick and affordable public transport - at both ends.
Our first event of 2020 will be the “Lea Valley 50 km” which is a fast 50 km from Welwyn Garden City to Hackney Wick and follows the well known Lea Valley Path. Welwyn and Hackney Wick are both great train/tube/bus hubs from and to Central London and beyond.
The course is fast and should be a great opportunity for those looking for their first “runnable” Ultra and those who are looking to get a great PB.
Our intention is to create a professional but fun environment that encourages runners to enjoy the ultra distances like we do. We will partner with the best race-time organisers on the planet to make sure that you get the most accurate timings in all our events. We love the experts at DUV Statistik and all our results will appear on their platform.
All our events will provide nutritional food and drinks from our favourite partners like Tailwind. We have no permanent staff and all our events are supported by a merry band of volunteers.
