Great challenges need great settings - and none are better than the Island's coastal path.
We’ve moved the date (due to Covid restrictions) so we have more daylight, and flipped the route so it’s easy to join with our new Cowes base-camp 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.
We understand the commitment, courage and thought that goes into participating in a challenge event on behalf of Cats Protection and promise we will do our very best to give you all the help and support you need to have a successful challenge and raise lots of much-needed funds to help us care for cats and kittens.
We will also provide you with a dedicated Facebook group to network with fellow cat-loving trekkers and a branded yellow Cats Protection technical tee-shirt to train and walk in, plus ideas, resources and support to help you fundraise.
With revised July dates we have a base-camp near Cowes – closer to the main car & passenger ferry terminals, with lots of space for camping & parking, and will make it easy to join & exit. The new route is anticlockwise – and at 106 km & 2,000 metres of climb, the Full Challenge is a tough one! There’s a Full 2 Day ‘Daylight’ option, ‘half’ Island & ‘quarter’ Island options also – so this summer there’s an Isle of Wight Challenge waiting for you!
