Route description
Route description

This event is in aid of brainstrust, a charity founded in 2006 which aims to make everyone with a brain tumour feel less afraid, less alone and more in control. As such, there is a minimum fundraising target of £500 for those entering which will go toward the amazing work that brainstrust does.

Day one's route will wind along the scenic coastal path for 25 miles from Cowes to Ventnor, taking in the abundance of spectacular views which the Isle of Wight has to offer.

Day two goes from Ventnor to Yarmouth where you will witness a key feature of the Isle's geography, chines, which are coastal gorges, carved out by streams. With very little signs of civilisation across this route, it will give you a real taste of the Isle's wild nature.
