Conrad finishes his coastal challenge to cheers

He arrived at Cromer Pier still full of beans and ready to chat to the crowd of people who had been waiting to greet him.

BBC radio presenter Nick Conrad completed his four-day run along the Norfolk Coast path this afternoon, accompanied by local running club members and BBC weather presenter Elizabeth Rizzini, who ran with him for the last day from Cley to Cromer.

Nick is raising money for Children in Need in what has become an annual fundraiser of various sporting and other events, including in past years singing in public and a triathlon.

This the fifth year of his efforts was a 45-mile run from Hunstanton in four days, accompanied, along with others, by trainer Neil Featherby, from the North Norfolk Beach Runners.

“I have been joined by different people every day which has been lovely,” said Nick, who arrived in Cromer just before the rain to cheers from the Radio Norfolk listeners, who had come along to see him, and the cast of the Cromer Christmas Show.

He added: “We have been really looked after at all the starting points this week by the National Trust, Cley Windmill and Wells Beach Café and cheered along en route.”

He admitted to being “a little tired” after running solidly for three hours a day, but was delighted to have completed his challenge and is looking ahead to next year already. Maybe you have some ideas?
