The fully signed ULTRA LONDON route largely follows the fantastic Capital Ring footpath.
The Capital Ring forms an inner circle around Greater London. In 2020 ULTRA LONDON gives you the opportunity to take on the Northern or the Southern half of the path, whilst experienced ultra runners can opt for the entire Capital Ring over two days in the ULTRA LONDON 125 distance.
The route includes some of London’s finest scenery, including Syon Park, the Grand Union Canal, Brent Reservoir, the Thames Barrier, Eltham Palace, Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park to name just a few highlights. Take in stunning views of the London skyline whilst keeping off the beaten track.
The route is a mix of trails, footpaths, parks, disused railway lines, woodland and more (rarely will you encounter a main road or highway). The surface will be gravel, grass, tarmac and depending on weather conditions, may be muddy in places.
