Cowes, Isle of Wight: Crossfield Ave, Cowes, United Kingdom
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 and 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.
