Great challenges need great settings, and there’s none better than this stunning coastal path. Over 2,000 adventurers take on the Island in May - most walking but many jogging or running - past the famous Needles and up to Cowes at half way, then around clockwise back to our base camp in Chale after a spectacular 106km journey with full support and hospitality.
Whichever distance you choose to take on the scenery and landscape of the Isle of Wight will amaze you. The full 106km route puts this challenge as the longest in the series, and with over ~1960m of climb, it’s a real tough challenge on the legs. The 2 Day option allows you to rest Half-Way on the North of the Island; so you can experience the whole route in daylight - or take it all on as a continuous challenge.
The 1st Quarter route follows the coastal path along the south of the Island all the way to the iconic Needles and makes for an ideal 1st-time Challenge. If you push on for the 1st Half - it’s an Ultra Marathon distance - all the way to Northwood.
