Whatever you favourite exercise is, be it running, walking, jogging, wheeling, cycling, hopping, skipping, jumping, or doing the housework, you can make your way around the 94 mile course and be rewarded with a medal.
All the daily exercise a person performs counts towards a virtual sightseeing tour around the Island, passing well known venues on the way. A medal is awarded on completion of the event in January, courtesy of Diametric.
The challenge, which is supported by the Isle of Wight Council and Visit Isle of Wight, starts today (1st September) and will conclude on 31st December. Entry is £20 per person with the exercise completed entered into the online system either manually or by syncing a fitness tracker.
There are options to enter solo or as part of a team, and special arrangements have been made for school classes, care settings and children’s activity groups to enter as a group, combining their activity to earn a group trophy.
Will Myles, Managing Director at Visit Isle of Wight, has said:
“We’re delighted to support Isle Access with this amazing project. Not only does it appeal to Island residents who want to get fit and support charities, but it is also a great way for tourists who either want to explore our Island’s offerings, or those who already love visiting here, to have a virtual taste of our beautiful Island.
“Please support this project by competing in it and by spreading the word to family and friends nationwide.”
