Isle of Wight XC Half

Runner's World (UK) - - Race -

A chal­leng­ing but highly re­ward­ing 13.1-mile jaunt around the land of the Caulk­heads. The route is a masochis­tic mix of tough and beau­ti­ful, as you run around the tip of the western coast of the is­land, and his­tory buffs will love the chance to pass the fa­mous Nee­dles mon­u­ment, which is a me­mo­rial to the tests Guglielmo Mar­coni did on the is­land at the turn of the 20th cen­tury when de­vel­op­ing ra­dio trans­mis­sions. Fresh­wa­ter, Isle of Wight, June 4, west­wight.org.uk
