Isle of Wight Ultra Challenge 2020

The location

Join Team Macmillan to walk, jog or run around the Isle of Wight.

Great challenges need great settings - Walk the Island’s stunning Coastal Path on the second of the Ultra Challenge Series. Join 2,000 others for an unforgettable challenge over the Bank Holiday weekend. It will be rewarding, fun, and absolutely achievable with a little determination!

Set on the Isle of Wight, this stunning coastal challenge will take you along the spectacular southern cliffs, past the iconic Needles and up to historic Cowes at the half way rest top.

Take on a quarter of the island and walk, jog or run 25km from Chale to the Needles. Or half the island from Chale to Cowes and cover 54km. For anyone who's feeling especially brave, take on a mighty 106km around the whole island.

You'll experience beautiful sandy beaches, stunning views and an undulating coastal path. You'll be fully supported on the day, with excellent food and rest stops during your trek.
