The Isle of Wight Challenge

The original May dates have been rescheduled and the route’s been flipped so it’s easy to join with the new Cowes basecamp closer to the ferries.

The coastal path will now welcome challengers in sunny July, and it’s anticlockwise around the Island this year, down past the Needles & the Southern cliffs to Chale at half way – and for Full Island challengers it’s on to historic Ventnor & Bembridge and back to our welcome base-camp after an epic 106km journey.

You’ll get full support & hospitality, and with half & quarter distance challenges also – and optional camping packages – there’s a fantastic Isle of Wight weekend for everyone!

  • For all levels of experience
  • Join as an individual or a team
  • 106km full island challenge
