Walk the Wall for Young Cancer Patients
Price: 
£10 - £30

Put your best foot forward to support young cancer patients and their families by joining us on a memorable weekend challenge along Hadrian's Wall.

We know how precious time can be, so we have selected the best bits of Hadrian's Wall to offer a fantastic weekend challenge in support of the Trust.

Choose to take on the full weekend challenge, or join us on Sunday for the final stretch from Once Brewed to Chollerford.

Day 1, Saturday 15th September (Approximately 10 miles)

Starting in Gilsland on the Cumbrian border, our first day will follow the most built-up section of wall remains, including those at Walltown, Cawfields and Windshields. We will follow the Hadrian’s Wall path to Once Brewed, where we will enjoy a group meal before an overnight stay at The Sill – the newly built National Landscape Discovery Centre.

Day 2, Sunday 16th September (Approximately 12 miles)

Start the day by walking over Steel Rigg where you can enjoy fantastic views over the Northumberland National Park and the famous Sycamore Gap before making our way to Housesteads Fort where you can journey back in time to discover more about life as a Roman. The route will then take us to Chesters Fort and down into the pretty village of Chollerford where our challenge ends.

WEEKEND CHALLENGE: £30 registration + £99 sponsorship (includes overnght stay)

SUNDAY CHALLENGE: £10 registration + £30 sponsorship
