Tweedaagse loop rond het eiland Wight, wat ten zuiden van Engeland ligt dicht bij de kust. Deze loop volgt het kustpad, dus reken op veel onverhard en de nodige hoogtemeters. Wight is een eiland met lieflijke en ruige kusten. Deze 2-daagse loop staat zowel open voor hardlopers als voor wandelaars.
Een tekst van de website:
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. Itís 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 youíll 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 weíll 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.
"Thank you so much for another amazing weekend of running. I have to admit Saturday was the toughest day of running for me yet, but the scenery was amazing and it just added to the sense of achievement at the end! Another fantastically organised, fun, friendly event - great route and I loved the camping- so i definately hope to be back at this event again next year..."
