Proud to sponsor this year's Norfolk Superhero

Burnham Overy Staithe

This year, we are very proud to be sponsoring the 2018 Norfolk Superhero event. 

What?
The Norfolk Superhero is an annual fundraising event which takes place every June when the tides are right. The event is a quadrathlon and in teams of 2, participants perform a 1 mile swim, a 4 mile kayak, a 45 mile circular bike ride, and an 8 mile run across the beach and marsh to the finish line. Teams must stick together and encourage each other to keep spirits and motivation high. The event works on a buddy system, meaning no one gets left behind and you'll always have someone with you.

Where?
The quadrathlon takes place at Burnham Overy Staithe on the North Norfolk Coast. The 1 mile swim takes place from Gun Hill to the Quay at Burnham Overy Staithe. The 4 mile kayak takes place through the creeks of Burnham Overy Staithe. The 45 mile cycle route takes you around some of North Norfolk's most beautiful roads. Finally, the 8 mile run takes you across sand, marsh and mud towards the finish line.

Who?
Over the years, the Norfolk Superhero has increased from a small group of friends to a maximum of 200 participants. 

When?
This year, the Norfolk Superhero is taking place on Saturday 16th June. The event will start at approximately 8am.
