Entries close tomorrow for a long-distance challenge walk organised by a mountain rescue team.

The Alwinton Round starts in the Northumberland village and takes in wild countryside around the Cheviot Hills and Kielder Forest.

The challenge takes place on Saturday and there are options of a 20-mile, 15-mile and family six-mile route.

The challenge is organised by the North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team as a fundraiser for the volunteer organisation, which covers the remote areas of Northumberland and Tyne and Wear.

Entry fees for the two longer walks are £17 each and for the short walk there is a fee of £6.

The two long walks start at 10am and the short walk at 11am.

Online entry is possible up to midnight tomorrow. More details are on the event website.
