About the trail

From the heart of the Peak District all the way up to Scotland, the Pennine Way is a legendary trail that follows England’s backbone through the best wilderness of the north. But don’t picture the cold slog of the Spine Race when you look at this route. Undertaken in good weather and with reasonable daily mileages, this challenging trail run offers unique and staggering views like the great scoop of High Cup Nick. Villages nestled in the crooks of the Pennines and the Cheviot Hills provide memorable rest stops, and you’ll even visit a stretch of Hadrian’s Wall. The Pennine Way is full of challenging terrain, but its remote spaces offer endless rewards. A classic challenge.

Pennine Way Run - North Section

From Middleton-in-Teesdale, the northern section of the Pennine Way heads north through the North Pennines, across the best-preserved and most dramatic stretch of Hadrian’s Wall, through Northumberland National Park and over the challenging border ridge of the Cheviot Hills.

This trail running holiday is demanding, full of huge views won by long climbs, and remote, with long stretches far out of sight of civilisation. But with good preparation you’ll enjoy real immersion in the high places of the border territories, where a stiff breeze and a clear trail will keep your feet moving for miles. This section of the route is well known for the friendly welcome of its inns, where you can relax and recuperate after a fantastic day’s run.
