AFTER A THIRD SPECTACULAR YEAR IN GLORIOUS SUNSHINE, THE UK’S LARGEST NON-STOP ULTRAMARATHON IS BACK ON 20TH JUNE 2015!
UP TO 1000 COMPETITORS WILL EMBARK ON A 69-MILE JOURNEY THROUGH THE STUNNING SETTING OF HADRIAN’S WALL COUNTRY. WILL YOU BE ONE OF THE BRAVE 1000?
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 69 miles to be conquered in just one day. The Wall awaits.
