Hadrian’s Wall Walk

Are your New Year’s Resolution intentions; to get fit, to lose weight, to fundraise for a charity?
LOROS, the Leicestershire & Rutland Hospice can help you achieve all of these and a lot more.
How about training for a week-long walk along the 84 mile length of Hadrian’s Wall?
Organised by the appropriately named Adrian Walker, a team of approximately 10 walkers is being sought to raise funds for LOROS.
Adrian said, “Having successfully completed the trek with groups of walkers a couple of times in the last few years, I am now seeking to take another group in May 2015. The 84 mile walk across the country can be completed in a week with six days walking plus the travel up to Newcastle and then the return from the Carlisle area.”
Starting from Wallsend, Newcastle and finishing at Bowness-on-the-Solway, the route passes through some of Northern Britain’s most beautiful scenery and is a complete crossing of England from one coast to the other.
Walkers will need to pay approximately £400 to cover the cost of support transport, food and accommodation and raise at least £700 for LOROS in sponsorship, donations or by holding events. Assistance will be given to enable walkers to raise the funds for the Charity.
Training walks will be held most weekends throughout Leicestershire, and occasionally in Derbyshire and the Malverns, to help everyone gain sufficient fitness to achieve the challenge.
Walkers will leave Leicester by minibus to start the walk from Saturday 2nd May and returning on Saturday 9th May 2015.
Anyone interested in joining in the 2015 Walk or subsequent walks please contact Adrian Walker on [email protected] or ring 0116 231 8431.
