The Lieutenant Governor’s Challenge is to complete the entire route around the Island in 4 stages over each year during his tenure on the Island. It is ideal for walkers with young families, or those with less of an appetite to conquer the 48.1 miles in the Main Walk, remember that any walker under the age of 16 registered with an adult goes free. You could just do the Lieutenant Governor’s Challenge for fun, or as preparation to undertake the Main Walk in future years.

This year, the Lieutenant Governor’s Challenge offers you the opportunity to complete the 13 mile route from Le Braye to the Finish Line at the Waterfront, which runs parallel with the Main Walk.
