Burnham Overy Staithe
North Norfolk's stunning quadrathlon challenge is back in 2015 and this year will be raising money for the Wells Shannon Lifeboat Appeal... so please support those taking part or, if you're up for it, even take part yourself.
Competitors enter in teams of two who must both complete four consecutive events... a 1 mile tidal swim, a 4 mile kayak course around the creeks, a 45 mile cycle ride around some of the area's best roads and scenery and finally a gruelling 8 mile coastal run including sand, mud and marsh.
For more information, please keep an eye on the event's website.

Too old to rock'n'roll but too young to die? Still young enough to rock'n'roll and can afford a motorcycle? Then put a ring round 21 June on your calendar because Wells' very own motorcycle show is back in 2015, providing a great day out for riders and their bikes as well as a spectacle and lots to do for visitors and residents.
Now in its 7th year, Wheels-next-the-Sea has always been organised by and run in aid of the Scouts but this time the show will be fund-raising to help pay for our new Shannon Lifeboat.
Entry fee is still a most reasonable £1 a wheel.

Hunstanton to Southwold
Cycle Sportives UK supports the Shannon appeal with a 100 mile night-time ride for keen cyclists, starting from sunset at Hunstanton Lifeboat station, running round the North Norfolk coast (and covering much of Wells Lifeboat's 'patch') to arrive at Southwold lifeboat station in time for the sun rise. A half-way feed-zone will be at Cromer lifeboat station/pier.
Entry will be £35 per rider including a 10% donation to the Wells Shannon appeal and riders may also want to have a go at getting sponsored for this challenge by friends and family to help us reach our appeal target.
