The Sandlings 55

The Sandlings 55 is a 55 mile long trail which follows the Sandling Walk path throught the forests and heathlands along the Suffolk coast between Southwold and Ipswich. This relatively flat trail is a mix of tracks, paths and short sections of road and sandy trails that dry well.

  • Briefing - the race briefing will be at 6.00am before boarding the coach.
  • Coach - the coach will leave promptly at 6.15am
  • Start - the race will start at 7.00am in Southwold
  • Cut-Off - 15 hours
  • Price - £60.00

We supply runners with 1 drop bag for the race. The Drop bags are your ‘crew’ - some of the mandatory kit can be distributed between these bags so you have it available during the race should you need it - but you don’t have to carry it all the time, enabling you to make decisions about what to carry when and not be weighed down unnecessarily!
