The Isle Of Wight Challenge

The iconic challenge that takes you on a full, half or quarter lap of The Isle of Wight's stunning coastline

Most will walk, many will jog parts, and some will run the whole way. All will have special reasons for taking it on - all will experience a true test of determination & stamina. It's tough, achievable, and highly rewarding - so why not push yourself - and make it a Bank Holiday weekend to remember!
