About Needles Cross Country Half Marathon

On the Isle of Wight these days there’s something groovy in the air. For decades this slab of rock anchored off Portsmouth has been a magnet for family holidays, and it still has seaside kitsch by the bucket and spade. But now the proms and amusement arcades are framed by pockets of pure funkiness. A brace of music festivals draws party-goers, just-caught seafood is served in kooky fishers’ cafes, and cool camping rules – here sites are dotted with ecoyurts and vintage campervans. Yet still the isle’s principal appeal remains: a mild climate, myriad outdoorsy activities and a 66-mile shore lined with beaches, dramatic white cliffs and tranquil sand dunes. With that being said, the Needles XC Half Marathon is the place to be.

Our Needles XC Half Marathon is one of the toughest and most scenic half marathon’s in the country. The 13.1 mile route will take you over downs and heathland, past historic monuments and of course you’ll glimpse the most iconic landmark on the Isle of Wight – The Needles. But don’t take our word for it, come and run the Needles XC Half Marathon.
