CHALLENGE DETAILS

Originally running from coast to coast and spanning 72m we are left today with only sections of this famous ancient landmark which cuts through Northumberland National Park.

Starting at Lanercost Priory, we trek for 25 miles alongside the only remaining sections of the wall, admiring ancient monuments, beautiful scenery and the skill of the Roman engineers who built this famous landmark, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We camp at a lovely campsite just outside the small town of Haltwhistle.

This may only be a short challenge, but it's still tough and offers all the rewards of achievement! You may like to sign up on this as a training weekend for a longer overseas challenge, use it as a reunion with your friends from previous trips, or simply make the most of being able to take part in a beautiful trek for a good cause without having to take lots of time off work!
