Walk the Wight brings our community together to show that we care about how people experience death and dying. People of all ages and abilities take part and, with a choice of four routes and free bus travel to and from every walk, it’s easy for everyone to get involved and support Islanders and their families.

Take on the challenge of the Full Walk or Half Walks, or the wheelchair accessible, pushchair friendly Flat Walk. You’ll receive the new Island shaped Walk the Wight with Mountbatten 2019 medal when you cross the finish line!

You can also register your dog to walk with you and if your child attends an Isle of Wight Primary School they can take part in Schools Walk the Wight.

Support Mountbatten with your fundraising. When you register you can donate £25, pledge to raise £100, or go your own way with a free fundraising pack.

History

Now in its 29th year, Mountbatten's unique and world famous walk annually attracts thousands of people to walk across the beautiful Isle of Wight countryside to raise money in support of patient and family care provided by Mountbatten.

Founded by Bill Bradley & Frank Stevens, what started out as a small team building exercise for Morey's staff (now known as Jewson) has grown to become the largest fundraising event on the Island and the largest sponsored walk of its kind in Europe. 

Every year, people who take part in Mountbatten’s Walk the Wight raise a phenomenal amount of money, which enables us to continue to develop our services for Islanders and their families when they need us most, wherever they are on the Island. 

Lush, green countryside, historic villages, famous landmarks, majestic chalk cliffs and coastal views with shimmering blue seas - Walk the Wight has all this and more! With a choice of five walks and distances, people of all ages and abilities can take part, making this a real community event.
