Norfolk Superhero Challenge

Gresham’s is delighted to be sponsoring the kayak leg of the Norfolk Superheroes Challenge in 2019.  As part of our sponsorship, we have the opportunity to enter a school team and we are pleased to announce that Chris Cox (Housemaster – Tallis) and Steve Fields (Housemaster – Crossways) will be representing the school at this event. 

The Norfolk Superhero is a quadrathlon event, which will be held on 22nd June 2019 at Burnham Overy Staithe. 

Participants take part in teams of 2 that includes a 1 mile swim, a 4 mile kayak through the creeks, a 45 mile circular cycle route and an 8 mile run across the beach finishing with the last mile over the marsh.  Since it originated, this event has raised nearly half a million pounds for charities across Norfolk and, this year, will be supporting the Benjamin Foundation, a charity which supports local children, young people and families dealing with challenges across a diverse range of issues.  

We would like to wish Chris and Steve the very best of luck.
