Earl Mountbatten Hospice Walk the Wight 2018 is Sunday 13th May.
WELL DONE AND THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO TOOK PART IN WALK THE WIGHT 2017
WALK THE WIGHT (2017)
Walk the Wight was an awesome and emotional day, and we’re really proud of everyone who stepped out in support of the hospice – you are all absolute super stars!
Organising Walk the Wight takes most of the year and can’t be achieved without the support of so many people, witnessing the event finally come together on the day is nothing short of inspirational.
Figures so far show that over 8,200 men, women, children and dogs took part; numbers were boosted by just under 1,000 people who registered on the day itself.
Nigel Hartley, Chief Executive, who walked the entire 26.5 miles said: “It’s been extraordinary, exhilarating and painful in places! It’s incredibly humbling to see so many amazing people walk across our beautiful Island in support of patients and their families. Thank you to each and every one of you!”
OVER £4 MILLION raised since 1991!
Country walks and Coastal paths of the Isle of Wight
Our glorious Isle has miles upon miles of stunning and interesting walks to be enjoyed on the Isle of Wight no matter your fitness level, from small country walks to the more adventurous full coastal walk spanning the whole Island. With miles of accessible footpaths to chose from there are walks to be found no matter where you are staying on the Island. All the Island walks are clearly signposts and easy to follow and provide one of the best way to enjoy some of the Isle of Wight most spectacular views and scenery.
For those trying the main round the Island coastal walk there are a number of great rest stops from B&B to hotels along the route providing an overnight rest before continuing on as well as some great pubs and restaurants along the way to keep you fuelled on your walk. For the less ambitious walkers there are a number of smaller walks to try both in the country and along the coast all of which are accessible by car and bus. Some other great walks take in the historical side of the Island and some that enjoy more than a few pub stops along their route giving you the chance not only to take in some Island views but also some Island Ales.
