“London Gratitude 25 km” is a wonderful canal trail from Broxbourne to Hackney Wick, in East London. The route follows the scenic Lea Valley canal path and alongside the parks of Springfield and Hackney Marshes. Broxbourne is very accessible from Central London, being only a 30 minute train ride from London Liverpool St station. The race finishes very close to Hackney Wick overground station for fast access back to other parts of London.

 

As with all Camino events, you will be fully supported by nutritiously stocked aid stations, first aid support and course markings.

 

Race held under full UK Athletics Permit granted through the TRA (Permit TBA).

GRATITUDE 25 KM FAQ:

Please keep an eye out for our newsletters leading up to the event.  

 

1. How can I sign up? – You can enter all Camino Ultra events through our partners LetsDoThis 

 

2. Can I walk this race? There are cut-offs for all our events (mostly because the kind folk that you meet at all the start/finish/aid-stations are volunteers and we hire the venues and need to keep to strict times for our licences) So whilst you will definitely be able to walk sections of our ultra events they are not suitable for pure walkers  

 

3. What happens with my stuff at the start? You will be given a tag to write your “name + contact number + race number” on and all of these bags will be transported for you to the finish location.  

 

4. This is my first race – what happens if I don’t finish? One of the great things about our events are the accessibility of easy public transport. You are never too far from a bus or train station – dare say that a taxi could be called out to most places too.  

 

5.What trainers do I wear - should I wear a hydration vest -  Is there any mandatory kit? We often recommend trail shoes for this event but it depends on the condition of the trail. Camino will be hosting a Q&A in the lead up to the event to discuss this and we always recommend that you contact us (info@caminoultra.com) with any specific kit questions.

Hydration Vest - we think these are great items to own. There will be Aid Stations in this event with water and electrolyte drinks but it is also a cup-free event and so having your own vest with your own water carrying options are a great way to manage this. Contact us if you don't own one and want help in terms of kit choice.

 

For Camino events the answer for 'mandatory kit' will mostly be no. However please do read any emails that are shared or community/social media posts – especially ones that may be helpful around weather warnings.  

 

6. This is my first event – what do I need to consider that I may not have done for a road event. Can you help me with my Plan? Probably the biggest impact will be the amount of food/hydration that you may need. All the Camino Ultras will have adequate Checkpoints and we want to have a reputation for stocking the types of food on our aid stations that are actually good for you.

 

Camino Lea Valley Plan - we can offer everyone who signs up a free 1-2-1 to discuss how you might want to train for this event.  

 

7. Is it possible to leave a car at the finish and easily get to the start via public transport? No - with all the public transport available we advise that you try and avoid using the car for this event

 

8. What happens if I get injured and are no longer able to take up my place? Please see info for Race Refunds below. Always contact us on info@caminoultra.com - we are a small race organiser and we pride ourselves on a personal service. So we will do every thing we can to support you.  

 

9. What does the Gratitude 25 KM race include:  World-class timing from One Time - Drink and delicious food at the finish  Checkpoints stocked with nutritious food/drink  Full insurance from UK Athletics - Trophies for winners - Medals for all finishers   

 

10. What happens with RACE NUMBERS:  Race Numbers will be available at the start for 2023. You will receive full instructions from Camino in newsletter. Race Numbers will also be shared with a unique OneTime timing chip. Race Number can be pinned onto shorts or top but must not be obscured by other kit such as a race vest. It must be clearly visible at all times. Please do not pin it on the back of your body or on the back of a race vest or rucsac. 

 

11. What will happen for the "Registration / Race Briefing" The race briefing will be occur before the race start. The briefing will contain all the information you need to know to have a safe and enjoyable run. 

 

12. What happens at the finish? There will be volunteers towards the end of the race that will inform you how close you are to the finish – so that you can be prepared to sprint it home. You will clearly see the finish CAMINO PINK ARCH.

 

Our finish venue is in front of HERE EAST which will have your bag, a clean toilet and your finish medal.

 

The Camino team will be enjoying refreshments at one of the many great venues at Here East - so let your family and friends know that it is a great place to eat and celebrate with us.
