A unique endurance event along an historic route! It’s Full Island (approx 105km), Half Island (approx 54km), or Quarter Island (approx 30km) on the Grand Union Canal towpath – a ‘hidden green corridor’ that winds its way from the heart of London out towards the Chilterns. The scenery will surprise you – the Challenge will inspire you – it’s London’s Great Escape! Most will walk it at their own pace, some will jog parts of it, and others will run the Full Island ultra marathon style! A test of stamina and determination, but with great on-event support it is achievable.
