PLEASE NOTE - You are to late booking to receive a T-shirt after the event, so we have reduced entry prices accordingly.

Shepherds Walks has teamed up with the National Trust to put on the second 13 mile Cragside Challenge Walk/ Run.

New for 2012 - Guided version of the Cragside Challenge Walk. All our other Challenge Walks are self guided but for the Cragside Challenge we have a guided option, where you will be guided around the route by a Shepherds Walks guide.

Starting at Cragside (free entry included in entry fee), the former home of Lord Armstrong this 13 mile walk will pass through this superb National Trust estate before rising above Rothbury and following the Carriageway drive, with some superb views of Rothbury, the Coquet Valley and the Cheviot Hills.

Then the route will drop down to the small village of Thropton, before crossing the River Coquet and rising up to the south of Rothbury through some stunning farmland.

The route drops back down, before following the River Coquet back to Cragside and you enter the superb gardens as you make your way to a stunning finish on the banks of Tumbleton Lake.

The route is good under foot.

As you complete the 13 miles challenge walk at your own pace you will pass through checkpoints and snacks and drinks will be available on route and a T-shirt & certificate will be presented to every participant.

Please do book early to avoid disappointment.

The official charity for the walk is Tynedale Hospice. they have a justgiving page for this event.
