Cheviots Challenge 2018

37th Cheviots Challenge,

Saturday 1st September 2018.

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: 

The 'Terry Lynn' long route which is 22 miles long with 4000ft of climbing; the route will take in Swineside Law, Windy Gyle, Nettlehope Hill, Kidlandlee Dean and Clennell Street. Or the 'Eileen Lynn' short route which is 16 miles long with over 2500ft of climbing; the route will take in Barrow Law, Nettlehope Hill, Kidlandlee Dean and Clennell Street

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.
