The 35th Cheviots Challenge

The 35th Cheviots Challenge is fast approaching and will take place next weekend – Saturday 3 September. This fantastic event will get you high in the hills of the Northumberland National Park with the Team close by in strategic locations along the route to keep you safe.

This single event raises around 15% of the annual operating cost of the Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team so you’ll get that warm and fuzzy feeling inside too!

There is a choice of route:

Terry Lynn long route is about 23 miles and over 3500 feet of climbing and will include Clennell Street, Windy Gyle, Swinside Law, Battleshiel Haugh.

Eileen Lynn short route is about 18 miles and over 2500 feet of climbing and will include Clennell Street, Barrow Law, Battleshiel Haugh.

Both routes will take you through and over the beautiful Upper Coquetdale and Cheviot Hills. On the day of the event you will receive a route card and a photocopy map giving details of the route.

Cheviots Challenge

35th Cheviots Challenge,

Saturday Saturday 3rd September 2016.

The Cheviots Challenge is a fundraising event in aid of the Mountain Rescue Team. It is designed as a personal challenge rather than a competition.

There is a choice of two challenging long distance walks:

‘Terry Lynn’ long route or the ‘Eileen Lynn’ short route – both will take you on a journey in the upper Coquetdale and Cheviot hills, start and finish at the Rose and Thistle Inn, Alwinton, Northumberland.

On the day of the event, you will receive a route card and a photocopy map giving details of the route. Checkpoints along the route must be visited before the closing time shown on the route card. Checkpoints can provide first aid and one or more will provide refreshments. Participants completing the event between 0800 and 2000 hours will be awarded, upon presentation of a completed route card, a certificate and souvenir mug.

Once again a souvenir T-Shirt of the event is available to order, payment extra to entry.
