Registration fee:

This exciting and strenuous marathon distance challenge of 26 miles will have you trekking along this stunning world famous historic landscape. Hadrian’s Wall runs across the north of the UK from coast to coast and remains one of the largest ancient monuments in Northern Europe. You will trek in the footsteps of the Roman Empire and take in some of this extraordinary structure that protected the Roman armies from the Scottish.

Your Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival and Briefing

Arrive no later than 7pm at the challenge accommodation to meet the team and for a full introduction briefing about the event. Dinner is not included, but is available at the hostel if arranged in advance.

Day 2: Challenge day!

After an early breakfast, there is a short bus transfer to take us to the start of the trek near Lanercost Priory.

Our route then takes us eastwards along the line of the Roman wall to our finish point in the village of Humshaugh. The route encompasses some of the most prominent remains of the wall and most stunning views. At the finish of the trek a bus transfer will return us to the accommodation.

When it was first built, Hadrian’s Wall ran along the northernmost frontier of the Roman Empire and stretched from the East to West coasts of Britain, from Bowness on Solway to Wallsend on the northeast coast. It is a remarkable feat of construction and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and cuts through Northumberland National Park.

This is a sustained physical challenge across some varied terrain. You will be walking for approximately 12 hours and covering 26 miles.
