Water & Sand - What’s not to like!
This is a true, full on and totally fun day out taking on water, trails and sand, all either on stand up paddle boards or your own two feet - the whole day will be totally powered by you and only natural engines allowed..!
The day starts with coffee (of course) and then the boards - a quick reminder of how they work and safety briefings, we’ll head out for a ‘get to know’ya’ paddle so we can all find our feet before heading back for a quick snack, grabbing running kit before heading out again in search of sand and sea!
In search of the beach!
After a paddle up river, we’ll alight from the boards and swap paddles for running shoes where we’ll start our running journey in search of the beach. Norfolk is blessed with some of the most stunning beaches in the country, and one of the best ways to see them is on foot and the plethora of cross country trails will show you the way. The run will be manageable for most regular runners, as there will be plenty of stops to catch your breath, take in the stunning scenery and spot the wildlife. If you’re worried about being left behind then no need - our motto is no one gets left behind.
A bit of ‘Power-up’ before heading home.
All of this excitement of paddling and running obviously comes at an energy cost and you’ll no doubt now be getting as little on the peckish side. This is where we break off from the activities, sit down by the beach or the river and get some sustenance back into the system by having a quick spot of lunch. NOA have partnered with Firepot foods, which are truly tasty and 100% British activity foods which will be prepared for you to enjoy before the paddle back which will bring you to the end of your day.
Who’s this adventure for?
This activity is aimed at anyone who has previously paddled SUP and who is a regular, social runner - so think social paddles or a Parkrun on a Saturday. The pace for SUP will be around 2.5mph and running no more than 10/11 min miles with plenty of breaks, so a nice leisurely speed and ideal for soaking up the beauty of the environment and catching good glimpses of nature with no one getting left behind.
