Camino are a tribe of London based ultra-marathon runners and coaches.
Camino founders have been running ultramarathons around the globe for over a decade but we also appreciate how important it is to look for local based events that don't have the same impact on the planet we love x
So Why Choose Us?
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. This 'stay local' option is a necessary step for the millions of us who live in major cities around the globe. Let's make the best of what we have on our doorsteps.
We love that there are a wealth of trails in our city. We've curated our own series of Greenways and Blueways to celebrate these.
Other key things about our Camino philosophy:
Our events are accessible to everyone
9 hour cut-offs for our 50KMs - alternative length routes coming 2023
We've worked tirelessly with amazing organisations to change the dynamics of ultrarunning
BlackTrailRunners, GreenRunners, ReRun, TreesNotTees, TrashFreeTrails
We partner with businesses we love
Exhale Coffee, 80NoirUltra, LoomiLife are all exceptional healthy comps
Our Camino Races and Challenges:
Our classic ultra is the “London 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.
In 2023 we will host our first "Camino Grand Slam" series - so keep an eye out for
London Lea Valley 50KM
London Epping Forest 50KM and EcoTrail 25KM
Camino x LoveTrails Gower 50KM
Dusk til Dawn Looped London
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 Exhale Coffee, Organibox, Coros, Goodgym and 80Noir Ultra. We have no permanent staff and all our events are supported by a merry band of volunteers.
