The course has lots of flat sections, with a water station at 2.5. miles, but also includes the challenging hills of Solent View Road and Castle Hill so there is something for everyone. Please use the links to complete your registration form and to pay entry fees. Entries are £8 if paid through PayPal before 7/7/23 or £10 cash on the day. Registration opens from 9:15-10:15. The start and finish will be from outside the school, on the roundabout, and medals will be provided for all participants. Refreshments will be available before and after the race. Spot prizes will also be awarded so make sure to check out the prize table before you leave.
We hope to see you there.

Cowes Primary School is a very successful school in the heart of the community.
Our Early Years Foundation Unit has been identified as a model of good practice, ensuring that the transition and progress our children make is the very best it can be.
We firmly believe in the development of the 'whole' child, providing opportunities for personalised learning, enabling each child to maximise their progress and aim high through an exciting curriculum. We ensure that the children’s education is excellent, relevant and fun. We are all extremely proud of our happy school. You are always welcome to come and visit.
We work together as a community to release our children's potential, underpinned by our three values:
"Right to Learn, right to be safe, right to be respected"
We will rise to all challenges and new experiences, growing into independent, valued learners in a fun, safe and welcoming environment.
