What is the Norfolk Superhero?
The Norfolk Superhero is a charity quadrathlon event held annually in June when the tides are right, at Burnham Overy Staithe on the beautiful North Norfolk coast.
Over the years the Norfolk Superhero has grown from a small band of friends taking on a fun, annual challenge to more than 200 competitors coming together to put themselves to the test. While the challenge is undoubtedly a serious one, nobody takes themselves too seriously. Everyone has their own reasons for taking part, whether that be for fitness, fun, or friendship. What’s more, every year all the participants pledge to raise money to support Norfolk based charities, raising over £830k to date. Click here for more information on our chosen charity.
One of the key trademarks of the Norfolk Superhero spirit is the 'buddy system'. People take part in teams of two, working together so they are able to help each other and share in the success of completing the challenge with another person. On the night of the event, we all celebrate together with dinner and dancing.
The spirit of the superhero, combining a quirky challenge, teamwork, friendly competition and fundraising for a local charity has been central to why people love taking part in this event year after year.
