Saturday 31st August

The last day, and it follows a route also taken by Rat Race whose ultramarathon The Wall covers the 70 miles from Carlisle to Newcastle.

Then the day starts properly with Tyne Green Parkrun, where we will see who fancies joining me as I head to the finish of the Big TOE. We will then jog up to Chester’s Roman Fort to restart at the point I stopped yesterday.

Its a relatively short run today allowing time for a quick spin around St James’s Park, home of Newcastle United in the last mile, before the last few streets of Newcastle and back to the Cathedral where I started out 62 days ago.
