FAQs

What is Pier to Pier?

Pier to Pier is a 32 mile walk along the Norfolk Coastal Path between Cromer Pier and Britannia Pier, Great Yarmouth. The aim is to complete the walk within 12 hours. Please do not underestimate this challenge!  32 miles along multi-terrain (sand, shingle, paths, dunes) is physically demanding but the sense of achievement will be amazing when you’re enjoying your hot food at the end!

Who can take part?

All participants must be 16+ on the day of the event to take part in this challenge. (Any participant aged 16 or 17 must be accompanied by an adult participating in the event).

Once registered you will be required to complete a form with your contact and medical details along with a disclaimer (this will be sent to you following registration). If you are unsure if you can take part due to a health reason or due to being classed as clinically vulnerable due to coronavirus please contact your GP for advice.

What support do I get?

We will be with you every step of the way.The route will be fully marked for you and you will be provided with handy route guides which will keep you updated with information about the areas you’re passing through, as well as nearest local facilities.

There will be four rest stops along the route with drinks and refreshments, as well as water refills. At the finish line you will be welcomed with hot food and high fives!

What about rest stops?

There will be water and snacks available at the pit stops plus a hot option at the lunchtime stop. If there is any specific food or drink you require you will need to bring this yourself on the day.  Pit stops will be short (10 minutes) so you will not have time to go to shops and buy supplies.  We will aim to have a 30 minute lunch stop.  We advise stopping at the rest stops for no longer than 10 minutes to keep your legs mobile. The stops have been planned to have toilet and hand washing facilities available.

What should I wear?

We cannot stress the importance of good kit and equipment.  We suggest the following:

  • Walking boots/shoes – these need to be comfortable and not new on the day!
  • Socks – a good pair or 2!
  • Lightweight jacket – windproof/waterproof
  • Rucksack for essentials (water, nutrition, spare clothing, wet weather and hot weather gear)
  • Camelback – not essential but a great way to keep hydrated and also to carry a few snacks and keep a thin layer of clothing in
  • Base layers – great to prevent chaffing!!! (Lanacane just in case they don’t prevent it)
  • Sun cream and hat
  • Compeed – worth having with you just in case
  • Any medical supplies you need

Where to buy – Go Outdoors / Mountain Warehouse / Trespass / wiggle.co.uk / Sport Direct / Aldi / Amazon

How do I get to the event?

There is an optional coach transfer from the finish line at Great Yarmouth to the start line at Cromer. You can choose to sign up for this transfer when registering online. This is a great option if you are making your own way to the challenge without support, as it allows you to park your car near to the finish line( parking charge not included), ready to leave as soon as you finish the challenge.

Alternatively, you can make arrangements for a friend or family member to drop you off or pick you up.

Do I need to train?

We highly recommend you train for this challenge, 32 miles is a long way and should not be underestimated. Remember to wear the same kit you plan to walk in during the challenge. Please do not turn up having completed no training as you won’t complete the challenge!

Why not share your training walks with others? Ask a friend or family member to join you!

Suggested Training Walks:

Cromer – Sheringham – Cromer – 8 miles

Marriott’s Way – Norwich to Whitwell Station – 12.7 miles

Wherryman’s Way – Trowse to Loddon – 21.6 miles

What do I receive when I register?

Prior to the event, each participant will receive a fundraising pack with a sponsorship form, sweepstake fundraising game, on the day information and your participant number. Please ensure you complete the information on your number and wear this on the day. All participants must be accounted for throughout the route. These numbers are unique to you and therefore must not be swapped with other participants for health and safety reasons. At the end of the event you will receive a medal and a hot meal!

Do I have to raise sponsorship money?

We ask that you try and raise a minimum of £150 in sponsorship. Sponsor forms are included in your entry pack and must be returned as soon as possible after the event, along with all the fantastic funds you have raised.

 

When you sign up a personal Enthuse Fundraising page will be created and emailed to you.

We ask that all sponsorship and donations are returned to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice four weeks after the event. By doing so, EACH can make sure that we are on target to achieve best possible care to those who need it. You can return your funds via cheque made payable to “EACH”, along with your sponsorship form to EACH Pier to Pier, 42 High Street, Milton, Cambs. CB24 6DF

Are dogs allowed?

No, we do not allow dogs to participate in the event due to the nature and the distance of the walk.

What if it rains on the day?

That won’t stop us! Be prepared!
