Our first event of 2022 will be the “Centre of the Universe 50 km” – a totally unique ultramarathon where you decide the start point (as long as it is outside of a designated zone) and you finish up at the “Centre of the Universe” otherwise know as Hackney Wick in East London.
BE A TEAM or RUN SOLO.
We give you a state of the art Tracker (£20 to hire but part of the entry) and all the pre-logistical help you need to plan a start that will make a 50KM route from Hackney. You creating the start means that you are already free from others. We provide you with world-class nutrition from the ultramarathon team at KOMFuel (a box circa £20 in value) with enough gels/bars and electrolyte powder to get you to the finish.

“It was so so nice participating in “Centre of the Universe” Ultra this year. You’ve created this amazing race under CoVid restricted circumstances in London, just after going through long lasted no-group runs, no-races, highly isolating solo runs everyday. We were amazed to be able to be a part of great community again, running together but each created own routes towards Hackney-Centre of the Universe, where you all await with your arms wide opened! It was the best!
