Details

The Saltmarsh75 is a two day ultra marathon where competitors tackle seventy-five miles of the Maldon District's coastline. The route begins at South Woodham Ferrers, and takes you past North Fambridge and along the sea wall past Althorne and Creeksea and then goes through the renowned yachting centre of Burnham-on-Crouch.

Heading along the sea wall to Bradwell-on-Sea is the longest and loneliest stretch of the event. After passing the Saxon chapel of St. Peter's in Bradwell, the route then goes past St. Lawrence and Steeple is the final stop for the first day. On the second day, the route takes you past Maylandsea and heads towards the historic maritime time of Maldon, passing Northey Island.

The route then heads along the sea wall past Heybridge Basin, Osea Island, Goldhanger, past the nature reserves in Tollesbury and finishes in Salcott-cum-Virley.
