Walltown Warrior 1900

Walltown Country Park, Nr Greenhead, Brampton CA8 7HF

28 May 2022 - 29 May 2022 , 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Delivered by Northumberland National Park Authority

Walltown Warrior is a fun challenge event for all the family to enjoy, and as 2022 marks the 1900th year since Hadrian’s Wall was built, the two-day event will celebrate the great Frontier of the Roman Empire alongside the year-long Hadrian’s Wall 1900 Festival!

Set in Northumberland National Park’s Walltown Country Park, it’s a site with spectacular views and access to some of the best-preserved sections of Hadrian’s Wall.

The 3km challenge will take you past wildflower meadows, through woodlands, around ponds, and all whilst in the shadow of one of the most dramatic sections of Hadrian’s Wall. Walltown Country Park is the perfect location for the event, designed by and run in partnership with Challenge Northumberland.

Have fun and make memories together with family and friends, crawling, climbing and sliding your way around the course, with obstacles such as Quarryman’s Sandbag Shift and The Town Tunnel Crawl to name a few.

Whether you are a competitive athlete or complete beginner, the Walltown Warrior challenge is suitable for all fitness levels (aged 6 years and over). Don’t worry about being the fastest, you can run, jog, skip, walk or even hop around the course!

Participate as part of a team or as an individual – either way, your challenge will begin with a Warriors Warm Up before setting off around the course.
