This May Bank Holiday weekend, Team O'Tea are going to run the 2016 Isle of Wight Challenge!

Five amazing people will be putting their bodies through a combined total of 156km! That's 97  - or 775 furlongs - 170,604 yards - 511,811 feet - 3,183 V100 turbine blades... OK you get the idea!

The team members will be running varying distances from 26km through to 52km and are hoping to raise a total of £1,000 to support the Isle of Wight Youth Trust.

 In the past year alone, the Youth Trust has helped over 800 children and young people through their free, confidential and professional counselling service – that’s more than one child for every two classrooms! They have also piloted a family counselling service as well as offering specialised substance misuse counselling. We believe that supporting our young people is crucial to the health of our community and hope we can count on your support too.

So if you can spare anything at all for this worthy close please CLICK HERE! No amount is too small! If you can't spare anything then please help us to spread the word!

The Ultra Challenge starts on 30 Apr and takes in the island from Chale in the south, past the Needles, on and around for 106km - with spectacular coastlines, dramatic white cliffs, & sandy beaches. It’s a tough challenge which should make your fundraising target more than achievable!

Walk it, jog it or run it – it’s your challenge your way
