Event Reports


Meet the Team

There were a huge number of people involved in helping to stage the Hadrian Hundred, both before, during and after the event. We are still updating this list and have some of the checkpoint teams still to add in - please watch this space. Steering Committee Initial Chairman - Ian Lauriston…

Report on the Hadrian Hundred Route

The exact origins of the Route are lost in the mists of antiquity of more than three years ago. Originally entitled the ‘Centre of Britain’ in a reference to Haltwhistle’s claimed position, a change to the ‘Hadrian Hvndred’ seemed much more appropriate. I’m sure it was Bill Milbourne…

HQ at Queen Elizabeth School

As HQ co-ordinator I feel the weekend went as smoothly as it could of. This was the first 100 I've had any involvement with and I hope its not my last. I had a team of people helping from all over. Fellow LDWA members and also friends from other walking clubs. We teamed up on the Friday evening…

Sweeping the Hadrian Hundred

I guess sometimes the role of a sweeper is often overlooked, other than on the final section, as experienced walkers, very tired after two nights, strive to finish inside 48 hours to achieve their goal, when they need every encouragement and support. That will always be the case but on the Hadrian…

PACER / Results

Firstly, I know a lot of people like to have a paper copy of their result, so as we are not doing an event report if you would like to print your own copy then you can do so by downloading one of the following and printing it yourself. You can also use the PACER Results screen on the LDWA website…

Transport

It's now over three years since I was asked to arrange transport for the Hadrians Hundred. Not having had any previous involvement in organising such an event, I naively thought it would be just a case of hiring a couple of vehicles and recruiting a few drivers, and anyway, three years was a long…

Catering

How much food does it take to feed 500+ people over 48 hours, not forgetting the 35+ on the Marshal’s event?  A huge amount - a total of 2000 rashers of bacon, 680 eggs, countless loaves of bread, slabs of baked beans, rice pudding, bananas, flapjacks, grated cheese and, of course, 200 of our…

Treasurer

With a budget of £40,000 or so, present day Hundreds represent a significant financial exposure for the organising Group. Most costs are fixed but income is almost entirely variable depending on the number of entries. What's more, nervous Treasurers are required to agree a budget with the NEC over…

Social Media Reporting

During both the Main walk and Marshals' walk we had a lot of live reporting, comments and feedback on both the LDWA Twitter account and the Hadrian Hundred Facebook group, where you will be able to join in the chat. If you have not yet seen them why not check them out now. Both pre and post event…

Marshals' Walk

Marshals’ Walk The Marshals Walk took place on the 4th – 6th May. With 34 starters, all of whom will be helping on the main walk, the Marshals Walk offered a chance to test drive and fine tune everything in advance of the Main Walk. Results of the Hadrian Hundred Marshals' walk are now…
