Your challenge day by day

Day 1, Fri 24 Sep 2021

Arrival on Friday

The base for this challenge is in the newly refurbished YHA The Sill, located along Hadrian’s Wall itself. This hostel has been specially designed to be environmentally conscious and also serves as the visitors centre for the Northumberland National Park.
You will need to plan to arrive at the accommodation by 5pm on Friday evening.
This will give you plenty of time to get settled in before dinner at approximately 6pm.
Following dinner there will be a comprehensive welcome and safety briefing where everyone will have the opportunity to meet each other and your challenge leaders.
It is vital that you attend the Friday evening safety briefing, so please plan your travel accordingly.



Day 2, Sat 25 Sep 2021

Saturday: The challenge begins!

Everyone is sure to be feeling a little bit nervous on Saturday morning but after a hearty breakfast those nerves will soon be replaced by excitement! The trek will begin at 8am.
With your experienced trekking leaders there to support you, you will work together as a team to complete the day section of this endurance event. The day route will include the iconic section along the spectacular escarpment that passes sycamore gap and Housesteads roman fort with dramatic views of Hadrian’s Wall stretching into the distance.
After approximately 12 hours of walking you will stop for a fully cooked dinner back at the YHA before beginning again on the night section of the challenge.

After dinner you will have a change of trekking leaders and the real challenge begins. The night route! The night section is always the real test, so we'll make sure you are fully supported with lots of checkpoints, snacks, hot drinks and luminous facepaint! With all this support the sun will soon be rising and you will only have a few short kilometres back to the hostel. 



Day 3, Sun 26 Sep 2021

Sunday: The finish!

As the dawn arrives the finish line will almost be within sight - however you will need all of your team spirit to complete the final few hours as your legs begin to feel heavy and tired!

You will finish at 8am, back at the YHA, on Sunday morning and then be able to celebrate your incredible achievements with a delicious celebration breakfast.
After breakfast you will have the chance to shower and freshen up before saying goodbye to friends who you'll have shared this incredible experience with.
