31st Allendale Challenge 2022
*** THIS YEAR THE EVENT WILL FEATURE ELECTRONIC CHIP TIMING***
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.
For 2022 the event will feature electronic chip timing. Electronic timing provides many additional safety features in tracking walkers around the course, reducing waiting times at Registration, at Checkpoints and your arrival at the finish. You'll get an accurate finish time printed out as soon as you finish the course.
This information is provisional and will be updated nearer the event to be fully compliant with Government guidelines and law specific to Covid-19 safety.
