A point to point 50km ultra marathon along the Suffolk Coastal Path.
The 1st edition will take place on Saturday 10th September 2022.
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 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.
We are pleased to announce that booking in now open for the first Suffolk Coastal Path 50k, taking place on 10th September 2022.
We have provisonally changed the date of this event to 10th September 2022. This is to avoid the peak holiday season in August and to help with our permissions applications.
We are currently in the planning phase and are in the process of obtaining the required permissions. We expect to have everything in place and ready to release entries in January.
