northernrunningguide.com has teamed up with adventure specialists Rat Race to offer a 15% discount for their ultra event, The Wall. The race, scheduled for 21-22 June, is a cross-country, 69 mile journey that passes Hadrian’s Wall country between Carlisle Castle and Newcastle Gateshead Quayside.
Launched in 2012 it has been well received by the long distance running community. A healthy 90% of runners completed the 2013 route, an impressive figure given that there were exactly 1000 entrants, making it by far the largest Ultra on the UK calendar in 2013.
Jim Mee, Rat Race MD and creator of The Wall explains: “Ultra is booming. There’s something really special about making a journey on foot and we wanted to create something that had a real ‘destination feel,’ provided big-ticket wow factor as well as being very do-able. Everyone knows Hadrian’s Wall and it provides a superb backdrop for us to create a running route that is at-once beautiful, do-able and memorable.”
