We challenge anyone to find a more stunning location to cover the epic distance of 26.2 miles. Start and Finish location is Leaplish Waterside Park. The route takes you off around the lakeside way, a good trail surface, hugging the shoreline while you absorb the stunning scenery and modern art around Kielder Water.
TRANQUIL, PEACEFUL, PICTURESQUE, INVIGORATING, INSPIRING, CHALLENGING, MEMORABLE, REWARDING..but just remember...it’s no bus ride!!!

It all adds up to a great atmosphere and a fabulous weekend for this stunning region of the UK.
