Great challenges need great settings – and there’s none better than the Island’s stunning coastal path. Past the famous Needles, Cowes at half way, on and right around the Island for a full 106km – with spectacular coastlines, dramatic white cliffs, sandy beaches and many ups & downs enroute.
Most of the 2,000 challengers will walk at a pace that suits them, some will jog parts, and quite a few will run the whole course ultra marathon style. All will have special reasons for taking it on – all will experience a test of determination and stamina – with full support all the way to the finish line. It’s tough, but achievable, and highly rewarding. So why not start a journey – get fitter, push yourself – join us for a real challenge and an unforgettable Bank Holiday weekend!
The main start is in Chale – so the dramatic southern coastline is experienced in daylight – there’s half & quarter distance options also – with a challenge base camp for those who are up for camping before they set off. You can join as an Individual or as a Team – and with some training and determination, anyone can take on the Isle of Wight. Push yourself in 2018 – and take on a real challenge for the Down’s Syndrome Association.
