About the event

Great challenges need great settings, and none are better than the Isle of Wight's coastal path. 2,000 adventurers will take on the Island in 2022, and go all out to push themselves further.

It's along the spectacular southern cliffs, past the iconic Needles and up to historic Cowes at the half way stop. For Full Island challengers it's on to historic Ventnor, and back to our welcome Base Camp in Chale after an epic 106km journey. You'll get full support & hospitality all the way, and with half & quarter Island options also-there's an Isle of Wight Challenge for everyone

Your entry includes free food and drink at regular rest stops, plus support including medics, marshals and massage. As you cross the finish line, you’ll get a glass of fizz, t-shirt, and a medal to commemorate your achievement.
