St Cuthberts Way Challenge Walk - Self Guided or Guided

St Cuthberts Way Challenge Walk - Self Guided or Guided
Sat 8th August 2015

This 19.5 mile cross border challenge takes in the best section of St Cuthbert’s Way as you start walking in Scotland and finish in England.

After registration in Wooler you will be transferred up to Morbattle to start the walk. You initially climb Grubbit Law, follow the ridge over Wideopen Hill (the highest point on St Cuthbert’s Way at 368m) and pass over Cookedshaws Hill before dropping down to Town Yetholm. This section of the challenge walk is truly stunning with the Cheviots to the South and the Scottish Borders to the north.

After leaving Yetholm you then have a climb up to the border ridge where you pass from Scotland into England before dropping down to Hethpool.

From Hethpool the route passes just south of Kirknewton as you pass in between ancient hill settlements in such a picturesque but rugged landscape as you make your way back to Wooler.

Throughout the challenge walk you will pass through checkpoints with water available on all of them and snacks on one. Emergency first aid is provided and if you drop out during the walk we will take you back to Wooler.

The total ascent on this walk is - 3333 feet (1016m)

A truly special challenge walk passing along the best section of St Cuthbert’s Way as you make your way from Scotland back into England before receiving a well deserved welcome back after completing a true challenge.

A % of your entry fee goes staright to Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescure team as a donation for the stirling work they do.
