5 - 6 May 2018
Isle of Wight
The Isle of Wight trek is 106km of stunning coastal paths, white cliffs and sandy beaches. You can walk, jog or run on this challenge, with the option of spreading it out over 2 days. Action Challenge will be there offering full support and hospitality all the way to the finish line. You'll find no other trek in the UK like it.
If 106km sounds a bit daunting, then there is the option of a 50km and 25km trek where you can go at your own pace and you'll still get the same benefits as everyone else.
Whether you take part as an individual or part of a team, we will be there to support you from when you register to finish line:
- Walk at your pace- 24+ hours
- Jog or run and set a new goal
- Rest stops with free food & drink
- Fully signed route
- Medics, massage, and pace walkers
- Medal, T shirt, glass of bubbly
- Training & guides to help you prepare

Why is your fundraising so important?
Before the British Heart Foundation was founded 4 in 5 children born with congenital heart disease died before their first birthday. Today in the UK, thanks to research, 4 in 5 survive into adulthood.
Even with this progress coronary heart disease is still the UK’s single biggest killer, but we’re leading the fight against it. To win this fight we need your help. Together we will improve lives.
