10,000 sign up to Walk the Wight

The Isle of Wight is set to welcome thousands of people who are taking part in a walking challenge as part of a festival currently being held on the island.

According to a report by the Isle of Wight County Press, more than 10,000 people have signed up to appear in the Walk the Wight event, which is part of the Isle of Wight Walking Festival.

Footpaths across the island are currently being cleared by volunteers in order to prepare for the walk, while recent wet weather has affected the tracks.

Organisers have urged those who are planning to take part in the challenge on the Isle of Wight to ensure they bring suitable footwear, as well as being prepared for rain on the day.

Registration for the event is now closed and the walk will be held on Sunday (May 13th), with a choice of three distances - from 12.5 miles to a marathon-busting 26.5 miles - available.
