27th Allendale Challenge 2016

The Allendale Challenge is organised by North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team to raise funds for the team, it is considered by many to be one of the toughest challenge walks around.

It is always very popular and should be a "must do" event for any keen walker or fell runner.

The route covers some of the finest peat bogs in the North Pennines. Taking an anti-clockwise loop from Allendale town the route takes in Hard Rigg, Black Hill, Kilhope Law before returning to the town via the Spartylea, The Drag, and Ladlewell. The weather on the event can be as challenging as the terrain which all adds to the fun.
