Start location: Kelling Heath Nature Reserve


Finish Location: As above


Turnaround Point Day - Morston Key National Trust Car Park.


This is an easy route to follow with footpaths mostly on the sea wall. You need to pay attention to small sections that leave the sea wall but is fairly well signed as the Norfolk Coastal Path. 


There are long sections of shingle patches and in bad weather the route is exposed to wind and rain and sea spray.


Cut offs: obviously you can run this in sections and in your own time, the race had a cut off of 6 hours for each day..


Transport/Parking: There are local car parks at the start where you can then walk to the start point. At the end of each leg turnaround there is a local NT car park.


Refund Policy: Once you have registered there is no refund or transfer and you have till december 31st to complete the route.


After you have run it all: Send us your gpx file or strava link or other evidence that you have run the route, we will check and send you your medal.


Please note all your evidence must be dated after the registration date. Any runs on the route before this date can not be counted.
