Description of run
The Northumbrian Gathering is a 3 day event organised every year by the Section for the past 40 years. We are making this a special event to celebrate this Anniversary. It is based in Wooler where it has been for a number of years. Wooler is a large village on the edge of the Cheviot Hills. It is an ideal base for exploring Northumberland and the Scottish Borders. Highburn House Campsite is a few minutes’ walk from the main street and shops. The event consists of the following activities:- Friday Social Run - An informal run of about 50 miles, starting from the campsite mid-afternoon Saturday - The main Northumbrian Gathering Run. This route will be a run of around 100 miles, on scenic, quiet, minor roads through the Cheviot Hills to a refreshment stop in the morning. There will be more stunning scenery to see as we head to the lunch stop, afterwards returning to Wooler by the North Cheviots. On Saturday Night we have the Annual Social and Presentation Evening!! Last year, the event was a stunning success and this year it will be even better. Held at The Red Lion, in nearby Milfield. Including two course meal, bar with real ales and ciders, plus entertainment in our own marquee! Transport to and from the event at discounted rates. There will be an optional dress code to be announced later. Sunday - There will be a short run on Sunday morning. Entry forms will be available from the organiser or by download from the website. So come and see us! Put a note in your diary as numbers are limited and this is bound to be a popular event!
