This event has passed. Congratulations to all the participants. Get race results and photos.

The fifth staging of The Twilight Ultra takes place at the Redbridge Cycle Centre in East London after another successful year in 2018.

The secure, traffic-free, undulating, tarmac route sees runners covering laps of the cycle circuit and finishing on what will, hopefully, be a balmy summer's evening.

With good parking and spectating facilities, the event features a choice of three distances with start times varying according to the distance you select. Aim high and select the ultra distance and you can always step down to a shorter distance.

Runners will be able to take advantage of well-stocked aid stations on each lap with the availability of hot and cold food and drink.

      Did the Marathon in 2019

      Lovely run with one massive hill and great snacks. I don't believe the track length was accurate however and there was a consensus on this.

      Did the Marathon in 2019

      I really enjoyed the day and surprisingly found the circuit repetitions a good way to run a marathon. You always knew where you were in the race and helpfully didn't have to carry supplies, as you could pick them up from the supplies tent each time around.
      I would definitely do it again. ESPECIALLY IF THE HILL WAS FLATTENED OUT! Thank-you to all who made the day run (!!) so well. Andrew
