Coquet Valley Challenge Walk 2016
Tue 28th June 2016
On Saturday just under 100 participants took place on the first ever Coquet Valley Challenge Walk.
After registering in Rothbury everybody headed North onto the Carriageway Drive before dropping down and crossing the River Coquet at Thropton.
After passing through checkpoint 1 (Tosson Lime Kiln) everybody climbed up and passed over the summit of Simonside and then followed the ridge over Dove Crag and then down to Lordenshaws (checkpoint 2).
After continuing the decend on St Oswald's Way everybody came back to Rothbury via Whitton Hillhead before following the River Coquet back to the village.
A stunning 13 miles with the odd shower on the way.
Well done to everybody who completed the 2016 Coquet Valley Challenge Walk.
