Choose your distance and walk, jog or run around the coastal paths of the Isle of Wight
Great challenges need great settings - and few are better than the Island's coastal path. 2,000 adventurers will take on the Isle of Wight in May - with 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!
I was absolutely amazed at the organisation. Outstanding. The rest stops were amazing. [The Trekmasters] helped the team get through the night and got us through to the end. The walk was gruelling but the layout of the event and the frequent triangles made it clear to follow. Am really impressed with Action Challenge
It'll be fun, rewarding, and achievable with some determination, resolve, and spirit. Join an unforgettable Isle of Wight weekend and push yourself further!
