On Saturday 8th September we had the fourth Kielder Challenge which again attracted runners as well as walkers.

It was a great day and thanks to everybody who took part.

Next years Kielder Challenge Walk is on Saturday 7th September 2013. More info can be found here.

You can view your own times and positions from the day by downloading a spreadsheet from here.

Below is the YouTube film from the day and also some pictures from the event.

Thank you once again for a brilliant day. Thanks to all the team - especially Lois and her friend for the teas and coffees - very refreshing. Loved the mile counting markers and the glammed up finish line.

Another brilliantly organised walk by Team Shepherd. I'm sure that you're all as tired as us participants (if somewhat less foot sore!!!) but you should reflect on a day's work, after many weeks of preparation, perfectly executed!Thank again - you were great :-).Robert

Jon and the TeamJust a quick email to thank you all for a great walk and a fabulous day. we used the walk as a prelude to the marathon in 4 weeks and it has proved invaluable. The atmosphere at the start was extremely friendly and set us up for an exhilarating run/walk. Your team were extremely friendly and yet professional and you have that mix perfect. Congratulations on a well organised and thoroughly enjoyable event. We will most definitely be back next year although with walking boots only I feel!!Many thanks againMartin Spears.

Another great Challenge Walk organised by Shepherds Walks. Thank you to all the volunteers and staff of Shepherds Walks. Special thanks to Lois and Olivia for the refreshing and well made tea at Matthew's Linn and the end. It was much appreciated.

A big thank you to all at Shepherds Walks for arranging such an enjoyable and well organised event. From arrival at the car park (with the discount vouchers), through registration, the route and signage, to the finishing goody bag, everything was smoothly run (and we even had some sunshine!). I do a fair amount of walking but usually not more than 20 miles at a time so 25 miles of the undulating track around the water was indeed a challenge, but a fun one too.

A great big thank you to Jon and all the team for such a wonderful day. So well organised from start to finish, and the coffee was wonderful - thankyou girls!! Me and my dog Keegan (black and white springer) will definitely be back next year and maybe a few more challenges before that! Well done to everyone too - a great achievement for us all :))
