That’s the challenge that Bill, Paul, Alex and Terry have accepted to raise awareness and more importantly money for ‘The Stroke Association’ to aid its battle against this silent sudden killer.  Every year there are approximately 152,000 strokes in the UK. That’s one stroke every three and a half minutes, a fact that Bill and Paul know personally having lost their own mother to a Stroke.   Our intrepid team will follow a long distance trail covering the entire coast of the Maldon district of Essex.  The Saltmarsh 75 is no walk in the park; Large swathes are exposed, uninhabited, isolated and raw, combined with driving wind and rain presenting an extreme psychological challenge as well as a physical one.
