The Stour Valley Path is a 100km (62 mile) long footpath in England, which starts in Newmarket (Suffolk) and ends in Cattawade, a village near Manningtree (Essex).

The SVP100 covers almost the entire length of the well marked trail, and is one of the longest point to point races in East Anglia. The path is particularly notable for the beauty of the scenery en route.

The landscape on the Essex-Suffolk border was made famous by painters such as John Constable and Thomas Gainsborough.

The SVP100 is easily accessible from East Anglia, London, East Midlands and Stansted airport, and is worth 4 UTMB points.

A 50k version of the race is also available called the SVP50 and this race starts in Sudbury and covers the last half of the Stour Valley Path.
