Hadrian’s Wall Challenge
This year Midshire Business Systems is taking on a strenuous challenge by aiming to walk the full length of Hadrian’s Wall. The Midshire team is walking in aid of The National Institute of Conductive Education.
Hadrian’s Wall is an 85 mile course across the width of the country, commencing in Wallsend on the west coast and finishing at Bowness-on-Solway on the east coast. The challenge is expected to last 6 days.
