The Challenge

Set on the Isle of Wight, this stunning coastal challenge will take you along the spectacular southern cliffs, past the iconic Needles and up to historic Cowes at the half way rest top.

Take on a quarter of the island and walk, jog or run 25km from Chale to the Needles. Or half the island from Chale to Cowes  and cover 54km. For anyone who's feeling especially brave, take on a mighty 106km around the whole island.

You'll experience beautiful sandy beaches, stunning views and an undulating coastal path. You'll be fully supported on the day, with excellent food and rest stops during your trek.
