The annual Norfolk Superhero Challenge on Saturday, June 25, will this year be in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA), with the aim to raise £50,000 for the lifesaving charity.

Starting and finishing at Burnham Overy Staithe, the challenge isn’t for the faint-hearted. It starts with a one-mile swim and four-mile kayak followed by a 45-mile cycle and finishes with a eight-mile run.

In its 10th year and growing in popularity, 200 people are taking part in teams of two and all entrants must raise at least £150 for EAAA, with some gold bond runners raising £1,500.

Sophie Emmanuel, EAAA area fundraising officer, said: “We are delighted to be the chosen charity to benefit from people taking on the Norfolk Superhero Challenge. The money raised will help us purchase baby packs for our crew to take on lifesaving missions.”
