Hadrian’s Wall Dart

3rd and 4th May 2008, a jog along Hadrian’s wall. This may or may not be with a friend and colleague from work, he doesn’t seem to be able to make up his mind so I’ve decided that I will do it solo if he’s not coming.

Hadrian’s wall is 83 miles from start to finish, so it just over 40 miles a day. The aim is to do this challenge fast and light, with a just a 20 litre pack, finishing at Wallsend in Newcastle on Sunday evening. Luckily (or not, depending on your perspective) I’ve got a week to recover, because I’m in for immunoglobulin treatment again on the Tuesday.
