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 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.
