FOLLOW THE SEAGULLS CHARITY WALK
COWES, ISLE OF WIGHT
1-2 APRIL 2023
Two great days on the Isle of Wight coastal path - you are in for a treat.
Kicking off in Cowes prepare for sea views as we wind along coastal paths and through little used glades until we come to our overnight halt in Ventnor. A team dinner will give you the chance to swap trail stories and perhaps compare blisters.
Day two, we climb a tall ridge and head for stunning West Wight with its towering cliffs and views. It really feels like another world as villages are few and far between and it’s walking a little bit on the wild side.
We’ll eventually hit Freshwater and take the old railway line to Yarmouth and our final halt at a cafe for tea and cake.
We’ll all get together for set-off, and meet up at various checkpoints throughout the two days. You will however step into the role of navigator on this self supported walk.
50 miles in 2 days on foot is no small ask. This event will really test your endurance. It will take all you've got to earn your finishers medal.
Registration is just £20 per person, all we ask is that you raise at least £500 in sponsorship to help brainstrust change the world for the brain tumour community. We will in return help you every step of the way with your fundraising.
This trek is rated Red, and is tougher than the Fife, but not as hard as the Whitby or Dartmouth Follow the Seagulls routes - it is still 25 miles a day though so you will need to prepare and train well in advance.
You will need great map reading/orienteering skills and training is a must. You can find further information on training, and your recommended kit list here.
