This was a really friendly and enjoyable event with breathtaking views of hills covered with heather and bilberries from two of the highest summits in the Cheviots. There was an ear-popping descent from the Great Cheviot before climbing back up Hedgehope Hill, and little shelter from the heat in spite of a cool wind on the high ground and clear streams in the valleys. Amazingly the organisers had managed to transport water to all but one of the checkpoints!
