Preparations underway for Isle of Wight walking event

Isle of Wight holidays could be set to be popular in the next few days, as the island is hosting a major walking event at the weekend.

Keen walkers are likely to be among those travelling across the Solent in order to take part in treks being hosted as part of the Autumn Walking Werekend, which gets started on Friday (October 21st).

Organised by the Isle of Wight Council, more than 60 walks are set to take part over the course of the four days, with a speed dating trek set to be among the highlights.

Singles will gather to go on the walk, which boasts three weddings, an engagement and a baby since it was first held.

The biggest challenge is likely to be the Ultimate Round the Island Walk, which challenges ramblers to trek around the 72-mile coastline of the Isle of Wight within 24 hours.

Those who want to take part are encouraged to raise money through sponsorship for Beaulieu House.
