Blood Sweat and Beers !
If your looking for a fun event to have a go at this summer then why not get along to the Hedley on the Hill Race. The race takes place annually, through fields and finishes at the Feathers Inn, its only about a mile but it is a steep hill.
Teams of three carry an empty beer barrel which is not heavy so much as cumbersome, we recommend people wear gloves. The race is on Bank Holiday Monday 9th April at 1pm. Registration is between 10am and 12 noon. The entry fee is £15 per team of 3 and all the proceeds go to Northumberland Search and Rescue. First prize is a Barrel of Beer (72 pints). There is also a Beer Festival on and other activities for the family. The charity event gets good coverage in the Hexham courant. There is also a fancy dress class and a children’s race.
