The Isle of Wight Challenge, it’s you versus the island…are you up for the challenge!    

The Route
The Isle of Wight Challenge follows the magnificent coastal path along public footpaths and quiet country lanes around England’s largest island, over half of which is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. 
Our challenge starts in the north of the island in West Cowes. The route then heads in an anti-clockwise direction past Yarmouth Castle and out to the western most point, the famous Needles. Our route continues along the so called “Back of the Wight”, – dominated by spectacular coastlines, dramatic cliffs and chalk downs to the 50km mark in the village of Chale, home to one of the world’s oldest amusement parks! For those on the 100km challenge the route passes the Victorian seaside towns and beaches of Ventnor, Shanklin, Bembridge and Ryde, before returning to East Cowes.  A quick river crossing on the floating bridge chain ferry brings you back into West Cowes and the finish line.
