What to expect

Explore the Isle of Wight, choosing from the full 100km challenge, 50km half-challenge, or even a 25km quarter distance options.

All routes begin along the spectacular southern cliffs, past the iconic Needles and up to historic Cowes at the half way stop. Trekkers taking part in the full challenge will then head towards historic Ventnor, and then back to Base Camp in Chale after an epic 106km journey. Whichever route you want to take on, 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.
