This event covers the whole length of Hadrian’s Wall in three days.  You cycle the first part, walk the central and more mountainous part, and cycle the last part in support of Breast Cancer Now.  The walking part covers some of the finest and best preserved sections of the Wall.

Our itineraries follow Hadrian’s Wall from West to East. The reason for this is that the prevailing winds, in the UK, during the months of April – October are generally from the West. This means that, in all likelihood, you will be walking with the wind on your backs. This is much nicer than walking into the wind. Should you however prefer to walk East to West then we can, of course, simply reverse the itinerary for you. Just let us know and we will arrange this for you.

About & Details

This adventure covers the whole length of Hadrian’s Wall in three days.  You cycle the first part, walk the central, more mountainous and craggy section, and cycle the last part.  The route passes through some of Northern England’s most beautiful scenery and on the walk you will enjoy some of the finest and best-preserved sections of the wall.  The terrain varies between the peaceful Solway Firth, the cities of Carlisle and Newcastle, and the wild mountain scenery of the central section of the wall.  The walking is along the wall from Greenhead to Brocolitia.  The cycling is primarily along the Hadrian’s Wall cycle route, which combines low-traffic country roads with off-road sections.  Throughout, the scenery is impressive.  A great way to do the whole length of the wall in 3 days.

The Route

Charity Information

About Breast Cancer Now

We’re Breast Cancer Now and by 2050, we will stop all women dying of breast cancer.  We’re a charity with a different approach and attitude.  Borderless, diverse, interdependent – we’re an open source of knowledge and experience, pushing ourselves to fill every gap in our understanding, leaving no stone unturned.  By funding the world’s brightest researchers up and down the country, we ask the big questions and are working tirelessly to answer them.  For every woman that outlives breast cancer, our lives are richer and filled with possibility.  And for every woman that dies, we’re filled with a greater resolve to reach our goal.  They remind us to live every day like we mean it, because time matters.  They inspire us to stand together – creating a collective force for good – whose energy is impossible to ignore.  With extraordinary strength of will, we’ll move from a disease that causes fear and emptiness to a generation where everybody lives.  There’s no time to lose.  Because each day or month or year we give back means the future has changed for good.  Together we can get there faster – and give everyone more time to live.

How to take part for Charity

To do this challenge for a charity there is a non-refundable registration fee, payable to Maximum Adventure at the time of booking.  You can then choose between the two different options below.

Self-Funding

Pay a registration fee at the time of booking then the balance due 10 weeks before departure.  With the self-funding option, you personally cover the full cost of the challenge.  This option means that there is no minimum sponsorship target due, but we encourage you to raise as much money as you can for the charity.

Minimum Sponsorship Pledge

Pay a registration fee at the time of booking and confirm with your charity their minimum fundraising requirements for the balance.  This will typically be double the cost of the adventure, less the registration fee.  With the minimum sponsorship pledge option, you must submit 80% of your fundraising target to the charity 10 weeks before the departure date.
