You have spoken and we have listened. It's back = point to point...!


This we will be starting at Hunstanton and finishing at the picture perfect setting of Caister Lifeboat Station.


You will be setting off from Hunstanton Cliff Car Park with the sun setting in the background.  You will head off into the night sky on your chosen distance of either 70 miles or 100 miles.


Both routes will meander along the coast road to the route split where the 100 miler will head inland for a small loop before returning back to the coast road heading to Cromer for the half way feed-zone. The 70 milers will continue along the coast road to the feed-zone at Cromer.


In Cromer you will find our fully stocked feed-zone. Free energy drink, Energy snacks, fig rolls, bannans, jaffa cakes just to name a few.  We provide ourselves on providing a great and fully stocked feed-zone.


Once you have topped up for your onward journey, the 70 milers will tackle the coast road round to the finish at Caister. The 100 milers will head inland from Cromer for a short loop before returning to the coast to watch the sun starting to rise as you make your way to Caister for the finish.


We will not be organising transport from Caister to Hunstanton or vice versa, it is up to the rider to arrange all their own transport needs.
