Isle of Wight

This event has been rescheduled for the weekend of the 10-11 July 2021.

As the Isle of Wight Challenge was due to take place on 17 May, before the planned easing of restrictions, the event organiser - Action Challenge- have confirmed a new date for the challenge on the weekend 10-11 July 2021. The full announcement and further details can be read hereWe will be in touch with any supporters who are affected by this to explain their options.

Along with a new date, Action Challenge have also confirmed a new revised route for the challenge and some other key changes to the event format:

  1. NEW MAIN START & FINISH  – we now have a major ‘base-camp’ set up near Cowes at the Isle of Wight County Showground, closer to the key ferry terminals and so making it easier to get to / from. We’ll also be putting on regular shuttles.
  2. ACCOMMODATION  - Cowes has many more accommodation options compared to the Chale area, and with the new start venue, accommodation in the Southampton area is also a viable option. We’ll also have extensive CAMPING available at the new Cowes base-camp – with packages for the Friday through to the Sunday.
  3. ‘FLIPPED’ ROUTE – Our route (still 106 km for the ‘Full’) now heads anticlockwise around the Island from the main Cowes start.
  4. MORE TIME – our main campsite at the Isle of Wight Showground will be open on the Friday afternoon from 2 pm, and we’ve extended the options with a Sunday evening camp.
  5. A NEW & EXTRA  50 KM ROUTE – a new option that takes in all of the stunning Southern Coastline on the Saturday  -  it’s called ‘The Southern 50’ – and will be fantastic!
  6. CHANGED QUARTER CHALLENGES – Our new route is ‘flipped – so the quarters are numbered differently – and we are only offering the 1st & 2nd. Fundraisers booked onto one of the existing ‘quarters’ will have to amend their booking.
  7. MORE TRANSPORT OPTIONS – We’ve built up a host of new optional extras and transport services for those who need it, to make joining and leaving their chosen challenge easier than ever.
