Zipe wire from the iconic Tyne Bridge
Date: 1st and 2nd April 2017
One of our more popular bronze challenges amongst the adrenaline junkies is the Zip Wire event from the historic Tyne Bridge in Newcastle. The event will be a great way of raising money whilst crossing another activity off your bucket list!
What is involved?
The opportunity is provided by Zip Slides UK, who have over eight years of experience of organising safe and successful zips, particularly from the Tyne Bridge. The zip wire involves abseiling diagonally 30 metres above the River Tyne for a length of 230 metres.
Can anybody take part?
Due to safety restrictions enforced by Newcastle City Council, the minimum age of entry requirement is 16. As a result, any participant aged between 16 and 18 would require parental consent to participate. Other than this age restriction, anybody else would be permitted to partake.
