34th Cheviots Challenge,
Saturday 5th September 2015.
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.
Terry’s route this year will be approximately 22 miles in distance and involve over 4000 feet of climbing.
Eileen’s route this year will be approximately 16 miles in distance and involve over 2500 feet of climbing.
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.
