Well done to everyone who enjoyed the warm sunny weather and donned walking boots, trainers and stilts to walk, run and bounce their way across the Isle of Wight for Walk the Wight 2012.
Thousands of walkers put their best foot forward, with many doing the whole 26.5 mile from Bembridge in the East to Alum Bay Needles in the West.
Over 10,000 people took part in the annual charity walk in aid of the Earl Mountbatten Hospice www.iwhospice.org Walkers of all ages took part with lot’s of them going the extra mile and sporting fancy dress.
