Race Description

After a superb turnout in 2013, which saw a 90% completion rate of our stunning 69 mile course, we’re back on the 21st and 22nd June.

For almost 2,000 years this vast Roman construction has stretched across the wild beauty of Northern England, and Hadrian’s Wall is now part of a UNESCO World Heritage site. Of course, it is no longer the ancient Frontier of the Roman Empire, though the history of that period is incredibly well presented at many locations, with sections of real wall and real forts, mile-castles and Roman temples to accompany you along the way. It is bound evocatively together by the stunning countryside of Cumbria and Northumberland, rising from the lowlands of the West into the rugged hill country of Northumberland National Park before descending gently to the banks of the River Tyne.

Your journey will take you from Carlisle Castle to the Gateshead Millennium Bridge over a mixed-terrain route that incorporates both on and off-road sections. There are roughly 69 miles to be conquered in 2 days. Or for those that want to rule with endurance – in one continuous journey.
