Join #TeamArthur on a Roman adventure in the North of England!
When it was first built, Hadrian’s Wall ran along the northernmost frontier of the Roman Empire and stretched from the East to West coasts of Britain, from Bowness on Solway to Wallsend on the north east coast. It is a remarkable feat of construction and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and cuts through Northumberland National Park.
You will be able to join us on this exciting and strenuous marathon distance challenge of 26 miles along this stunning world famous historic landscape.
Hadrian’s Wall runs across the north of the UK from coast to coast and remains one of the largest ancient monuments in Northern Europe. You will trek in the footsteps of the Roman Empire and take in some of this extraordinary structure that protected the Roman armies from the Scottish.
Meet your team in Bardon Mill in Northumberland on Friday 25 March and stay overnight in a local hostel (accommodation included in price). Begin the 26 mile trek early on Saturday 26 March, finishing by the end of the day.
