Super Exciting Racing Opportunity

Goodgym have a large gathering of runners signed up to this really awesome grassroots ultra running event by Daz and Bone Coaching!

“Lea Valley 50 km” is a fast 50 km from Welwyn Garden City to Hackney Wick in East London. The route follows the scenic Cole Green Way and Lea Valley Path all the way from rural Hertfordshire to the Big Smoke. Welwyn is very accessible from Central London, being only a 35 minute train ride from Kings Cross station. The race finishes very close to Hackney Wick station for fast access back to other parts of London. As with all Camino events, you will be fully supported by 3 nutritiously stocked aid stations, first aid support and course markings in addition to the pre-existing Lea Valley trail waymarkers. Race held under full UK Athletics Permit granted through the TRA (Permit Number 3731).

It is very rare to find such an accessible ultra distance race finishing in London- we are hoping to make this into an amazing Goodgym party!

Helping each other out!

We have a lot of first time ultra runners in our crew, mixed with seasoned veterans. So we have set up a special Whatsapp group for our Camino Ultra team.

Keep an eye out for training tips and (hopefully) group runs as we approach the event date.

Training Guide

Area Activator Simon has created a simple 20-week training guide to build towards the event day.

Please note that this is a rough plan, and everyone will approach training differently. However, we will try to use this guide for possible group training runs and sessions. Specific information for speed and hill sessions will be confirmed soon.

Please feel free to contact Simon Fitzmaurice for training questions!
