Isle of Wight walk to be held in May

Walkers could be tempted to book an Isle of Wight holiday in order to attend an event designed to test their fitness.

David Yates, the author of Beachers Bars and Blisters of the Isle of Wight, will be leading a two-day trek from Ventnor all the way around the island's coastal path.

Setting off at 08:00 BST May 14th 2011 from the town's seafront, the plan is for the walkers to reach Porchfield 12 hours later, where they can stay the night.

The next day at 08:00 BST those taking part will set off on the second 36-mile leg of the journey.

Organisers of the event commented: "The walk will particularly appeal to anyone wanting a reasonably tough physical challenge, some good company and a bit of liquid, social interfacing - or drinking in bars."

The island is famous for its walking trails, with the 2010 Isle of Wight Walking Festival winning a Silver Award for the Tourism Event of the Year at the Beautiful South Awards for Excellence earlier in the year.
