What some of our 2021 participants said about the event:

It was a great event. I loved the little boat crossing and the scenery towards the end. Marshals were very cheerful and supportive.
Benjamin, 90K

I enjoyed pushing myself to my limits and managing to finish it 3 hours quicker than the 2019 event.
Ian, 90K

It was a fabulous day, I achieved something I never nor my friends and family would have thought I would achieve 90km is quite a distance and definitely something I’m proud of. Both me and my friend discovered beautiful parts of the Norfolk broads I would never have seen had I not took part. The little boat trip was also a real treat. All the staff and volunteers were extremely friendly, kind, helpful and encouraging throughout the day and especially night.
Anna, 90K
