Norfolk Superheros 2019

Saturday 22 June 2019
Race start approximately 9.30am, see website for other details


As the North Norfolk Coast begins to move out of Covid-19 lockdown, and tourism businesses re-open, more planned events are taking place.  These are just listings, so please follow links and check with organisers of events before assuming events are running.


The Norfolk Superhero is a quadrathlon event held annually in June when the tides are right, at Burnham Overy Staithe on the beautiful North Norfolk coast.

Participants take part in teams of 2 over a course that includes a 1 mile swim, a 4 mile kayak through the creeks, a 45 mile circular cycle route and an 8 mile run across the beach finishing with the last mile over the marsh. Teams must stick together and help each other out although there is a good mix of competition on show as well.

One of the key trademarks of the Norfolk Superhero Challenge is the ’buddy system’. People take part in teams of 2, working together as a unit so they are able to monitor and help each other and share the success of completing the challenge with another person.

Named after the village’s Hero Pub, the event has, over the years, grown from a small band of friends to a maximum of 200 competitors, all of whom raise money to support a Norfolk based charity every year.

Swim - 1 mile from Gun Hill to the Quay at Burnham Overy Staithe with the incoming tide.

Kayak - a 4 mile course through the creeks of Burnham Overy Staithe.

Cycle - a 45 mile circular route on North Norfolk’s most scenic roads.

Run - 8 miles across tracks, sand, mud and marsh to the finish!

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE TAKING PART!

Price: FREE to watch, see website to participate
