Extreme Energy are delighted to announce the 2012 Round The Island multistage ultra, following the Isle of Wight Coastal Path.
The Round The Island sailing race is an annual, famous event which up to 2000 boats take part in every year, from professional races on huge yachts to amateurs and families on their smaller boats.
So we thought wouldn’t it be fun to run a Round The Island Race on the same weekend.
We will run clockwise round the island which will mean that amongst the stunning views of the main land and the English Channel we will be able to see all the boats come around the Island as the afternoon goes on.
We will be in West Cowes Friday night and the place will be buzzing with yachties prior to the next days racing.
This event will suit those who want a new challenge, people looking for an alternative to running marathons, those training for events like the Marathon des Sables or anyone who would just wants a fabulous scenic run around the Isle of Wight.
The event is open to runners and walkers.
Supervised bag storage
