Hadrian's Wall Weekend

One wall, one incredible 25-mile challenge over one weekend!

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 Northumberland National Park.

This amazing challenge starts at Lanercost Priory, and covers 25 miles (41km) of the only remaining sections of the wall. Trekkers can admire ancient monuments, beautiful scenery and the skill of the Roman engineers who built this famous landmark.

Encourage some friends or colleagues to take part with you — you can work as a team to train, fundraise and help each other out over the weekend!
