The Northumbria group of the Long Distance Walkers Association (LDWA) is proud to have been given the honour of hosting the annual hundred mile walk during the weekend of 25th – 27th May 2019.

The Long Distance Walkers Association (LDWA) organise their ‘flagship’ 100 event each Spring Bank Holiday Weekend. This event is held in a different area each year and entails walking 100 miles in 48 hours. There will be about 500 people starting the event on the morning of Saturday 25th May 2019 and they will walk with only short breaks until they finish. The fastest will finish in about 24 hours, and the slowest in 48 hours.

The Hadrian Hundred route will start and finish in Hexham, once the haunt of marauding Vikings but now England’s favourite market town with the imposing Abbey at its hub. Starting in Northumberland the route visits Cumbria and Durham before returning to Northumberland for the later stages. Highlights include sections on Hadrian’s Wall, the South Tyne Trail, Pennine Way (including Cross Fell, at 893m the highest point on the Pennines, and High Cup Nick, well known as one of Northern England’s geological wonders), Weardale Way and Isaac’s Tea Trail.

Entries open in October 2018, and even if you decide that a 100 miler is not for you then why not follow the event online. We plan to publish results and reports as it happens during the weekend of the event, so you can follow your friends progress as they take on this not to be missed challenge.
