Starting and finishing at the elegant Elizabethan mansion of Glemham Hall next to A12, there’s a choice of two scenic routes of 35 & 65 miles. Click here to sign up for the 100 mile challenge route. All routes head north through pretty countryside and villages before dividing - the short route then swings east towards Dunwich on the coast, while the longer one continues north to reach Covehithe with its curious ‘Russian Doll’ churches. Following the coast south, the long route rejoins the short route near Dunwich, crossing open heathland back to finish back at Glemham Hall where you will find massage, refreshments, live music and a bar.

'East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) is the charity providing a helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) for the people of East Anglia. Since our launch in 2000 we have attended over 20,000 lifesaving missions, touching the lives of many thousands of people. Our crew comprises specialist pre-hospital doctors and critical-care paramedics, operating out of two high-tech helicopters from 07:00 until 19:00 from our Norwich base and from 07:00 until 01:30 from our Cambridge base. We were the first air ambulance in the country to attend helicopter emergency medical incidents in the hours of darkness to unknown and unlit sites.
We need to raise over £11 million this year to continue our lifesaving service.'
