Retrace ancient Roman paths as you conquer Hadrian's Wall, one of England's most historical landmarks. Trek for loved ones, and raise money for people affected by dementia.
Hadrian’s Wall originally ran from coast to coast and spanned 72 miles. Today we are left with only sections of this famous landmark, which cuts through the Northumberland National Park and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Starting just a stone’s throw from Hadrian’s Wall, we trek a challenging 13 miles, both alongside the ancient Wall and through the surrounding area. As we walk we can admire ancient monuments, beautiful scenery and the skill of the Roman engineers who built this famous landmark.
"Fantastic – brilliant day! One that we as a family will always remember and talk and laugh about." Lynne
We meet at the Event Hub in Haltwhistle to register, have a full briefing and a warm up. We walk alongside the wall for the first stretch and get great views over Wark Forest in the north. The spacious and barren landscapes of North Northumberland surround us as we head towards Cawfields Quarry. Beside some of the most visible sections of the Wall we enjoy views over spectacular cliff tops.
On an undulating route, we stray away from the wall to pass the Crag Lough escarpment. Towards the end of our demanding walk, we pass one of the most recognisable landmarks of the day; the Sycamore Gap, with its single tree featured in Kevin Costner’s Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves film. With a short downhill we're back at the Hub.
