Isle of Wight challenge 2017 - Ultra challenge

Event Overview

Walk, run or jog! 

Great challenges need great settings and there's none better than the island's stunning coastal path. Our Ultra Challenge starts on 29 April and takes in the island from Chale in the south, past the Needles, on and around for 106km (65 miles) with spectacular coastlines, dramatic white cliffs and sandy beaches. It’s a tough challenge which should make your fundraising target more than achievable! Walk it, jog it or run it – it’s your challenge your way.

A new start point in Chale and the new two-day Full Island Option means it's daylight for the best of the stunning coastal scenery. There's 106km (65 miles) of coastal paths, ups and downs, highs and lows to experience before the finish line. Whether you're new to endurance events or a seasoned challenger, the journey will be unforgettable – with some training and our support – you can do it.

To join, you pay an initial registration fee online which is per person for individuals and each team member.

This secures your place (non-refundable) and then you commit to a minimum sponsorship target.
