Following the beautiful Isle of Wight Coast Path, our Round the Island Challenge Ultra is inspired by the famous Round the Island Yacht Race that takes place on the same weekend. With up to 2000 yachts and their crews congregating in Cowes for the weekend, the Round the Island Ultra guarantees a fantastic race-weekend buzz; stunning views over the English Channel to the mainland; and a unique perspective on the Round the Island Yacht Race as the action unfolds offshore.
The course has been classified as a qualifying race for the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc, with two qualifying points awarded to all finishing runners. It’s open to runners and walkers, and has been fully recced and mapped by Race Director Neil Thubron, himself a keen ultra runner and sailor.
We recommend that you join us on Friday night in Cowes, where you’ll have free time to stroll in the town, grab some food and soak up the atmosphere. Shared accommodation with showers will be provided in Cowes High School hall for multi-day competitors. Your first day of racing will bring you to the south side of the island, where we’ll be camping (bring your own tent! Or choose to pay a small supplement for a 2-man ensuite chalet for a touch of mid-race luxury – tell us who you want to share with at the time of booking). Showers are available at the campsite, and evening meals and breakfast are included in the package.
Friday night accommodation:Cowes High School Sports Hall PO31 8HB
