Hadrian’s Wall Virtual Challenge
Big C have teamed up with ‘My Virtual Mission’ to offer this iconic walking challenge which will see participants cover 85 miles on foot from Wallsend in the East to Bowness-on-Solway in the West. The virtual route traverses along the best known and the best-preserved frontier of the Roman Empire, Hadrian’s Wall.
How you cover the distance is up to you, you can run or walk, you can take 2 days to complete it or 90 days, you can even enter as a family or a team of up to 4 people and share the distance between you.
This event is a great way to stay active and having a visual representation of how far you have exercised helps keep you focused and motivated. Once you’ve completed the challenge, we’ll even send you a shiny medal, so you can show off your wonderful achievement.
How it works:
Go out and run or walk and then log each of your distances into your mission page or smartphone app (details provided after sign-up). If you wear a smart watch or pedometer that counts your steps, you can simply enter your daily steps and it will be converted in to distance for you.
Your progress along your mission path will be updated and you’ll get to see just how far you’ve gone. You can plot your progress compared to other participants and you can even enter street view mode in some places to see exactly where you are.
Your entry fee covers our costs and makes a small contribution to our work improving the lives of those affected by cancer locally.
If you would like to go one step further (no pun intended) why not ask friends and family to sponsor you? You can create an online fundraising page on our website here or through any of the other major fundraising websites such as JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving. Every pound raised really does make a difference.
For those that need some new walking attire, our Big C Active t-shirts would be the perfect choice: Why not add one to your basket at the bottom of the page?
Each entry costs £15 and includes a medal once you have completed the challenge.
