I have started a virtual run along the entire length of Hadrian’s wall. I was originally planning on doing this trip in person this August, but the pandemic messed that up.
The fun part about doing this walk is that you can do it on your own time when you have free moments. You log your distance travelled on an app, and you can see the street view from google of your virtual travels along the wall. An interesting way of “seeing” the length of the wall and getting some exercise.
I have created a Roman Republic “community” where you can monitor the progress of others doing the walk in our respublica family. The team is called RomanRepublic.org and the password to join is conquer2020.
I’m two days in, heading west.
When you complete the 90 mile journey you get a medal mailed to you. See attached image .
Still plugging away. I have now run 62km with 82km left to go. Just passed the ruins of the Mithraeum at Carrawburgh Roman Fort.
The temple was probably built by soldiers at the fort around 200 CE and destroyed about 350 CE. Three altars found here were dedicated by commanding officers of the unit stationed here, the First Cohort of Batavians from the Rhineland.
