A point to point 50km ultra marathon along the Suffolk Coastal Path.
We will be back next year, a provisional date has been set for Saturday 9th September 2023.
The race starts in Lowestoft and takes runners south, along the stunning coastal trail through Southwold, Dunwich and along to a seafront finish in Aldeburgh.
The route passes through several stunning natural habitats, including Benacre, Dingle Marshes, Walberswick and RSPB Minsmere.
The flat profile makes this a very runnable race that will no doubt see fast times, while also offering a fantastic environment for those taking on the ultra distance for the first time.
