Registration for Mountbatten’s iconic Walk the Wight is now open.  

We are hopeful of organising a physical event in May 2021 but also intends to run the virtual ‘Walk the Wight Your Way’ alongside, due to its popularity this year.

“We will do everything we possibly can to bring back the Walk the Wight we know and love next year,” said Mountbatten CEO Nigel Hartley.

“It is our flagship event and hopefully, if government guidelines allow, we can enjoy getting walkers together again.

“That said, our Walk the Wight Your Way was an incredible success this year and it enabled more people to get involved, so we are delighted to bring this back too.”

All money raised helps support Islanders living with death, dying and bereavement.

The main walk on 9 May starts at Bembridge and ends at The Needles, though walkers can choose to cover half the distance, either from the start or from the midway point at Carisbrooke.

The eight-mile Flat Walk from Sandown to Newport is also available for people of all ages and abilities.

Walk the Wight Your Way will be available throughout April and May for people to complete their miles in any way it suits them.
