Description

Take on the dramatic landscape straddling the England & Wales border - an area of outstanding natural beauty. A Chepstow start then through woodlands and the limestone cliffs of the Wye gorge, with the magical twisting riverside path passing Tintern Abbey enroute to Ross-on-Wye at half way. You'll climb Capler Hill to the Iron Age fort, and traverse above the river before Hereford's cathedral comes into view, and a welcome finish line after an amazing 100km journey with full support and the best hospitality all the way.
