One of the real Team Camino success stories of 2021 was seeing our community members support, crew and pace other Camino members in some of the epic ultramarathons both here in the UK but also abroad.
Two of our stand-outs were the Camino team (Paula, Kelsey, Miki, Kelly, Jen, Paul & Julian) who came together to be the full guided-runners for the wonderful Sinead Kane (Battersea 24 hour Sept 2021) and Amanda Heading who contacted us regarding future Spartathlon participation and in the same week had sorted out her own arrangements to become a critical member of our actual 2021 crew team in Greece.
This is something we cherish so much that we are going to try and support it in every way we can in future years. Whether this is through sponsorship, funding, on the ground help, communication (WhatsApp teams) or just being there together we want to continue to see our Camino community be there for each other (but also be inspired by each others epic stories and running performances)
This blog is fundamentally a calendar of all the events that Camino team and community are already signed up for in 2022.
It may just serve as a helpful list of races for you to investigate but you may also look at ways in which you "get involved" in a non-running capacity. Over the "traditional off-season" of November - February we will be sharing a series of blogs on the subject of crewing and pacing and hopefully revealing the multitude of ways in which you can get a real high from being part of an extended run community.
This list has been put together to include some real classics of the ultramarathon calendar but also to hopefully introduce some new races that will go on to become favourites in their own rights.
Please do contribute by making recommendations below + share your own thoughts on crewing and being part of the community
Still plenty of events happening in 2021 - keep an eye out on Camino Strava group for our first Camino District event in Greenwich Sat November 20th and follow MEUS + final Camino Plogging event of 2021 and a Xmas get-together.
