Welcome to the Hadrian Hundred

The Northumbria group of the Long Distance Walkers Association (LDWA) is proud to have been given the honour of hosting the annual hundred mile walk during the weekend of 25th – 27th May 2019. This website will provide prospective entrants with information about the event and updates before, during and after the event takes place.

The Long Distance Walkers Association (LDWA) organise their ‘flagship’ 100 event each Spring Bank Holiday Weekend. This event  is held in a different area each year and entails walking 100 miles in 48 hours. There will be about 500 people starting the event on the morning of Saturday 25th May 2019 and they will walk with only short breaks until they finish. The fastest will finish in about 24 hours, and the slowest in 48 hours.

The Hadrian Hundred route will start and finish in Hexham, once the haunt of marauding Vikings but now England’s favourite market town with the imposing Abbey at its hub. Starting in Northumberland the route visits Cumbria and Durham before returning to Northumberland for the later stages. Highlights include sections on Hadrian’s Wall, the South Tyne Trail, Pennine Way (with Cross Fell and High Cup Nick), Weardale Way and Isaac’s Tea Trail.

The Event HQ will be the Queen Elizabeth High School in Hexham, details are hereInformation about the Rules and Entries and Qualifying Events can be found on their respective pages.
