Lieutenant Governor’s Challenge – Route


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. You could just do the Lieutenant Governor’s Challenge for fun, or as preparation to undertake the Main Walk in 2018.

This year, the Lieutenant Governor’s Challenge offers you the opportunity to complete the 13 mile route from Les Fontaines Tavern to Le Braye Slip, which runs parallel with the Main Walk.

The Lieutenant Governor’s Challenge starts from

Les Fontaines Tavern at 10:30am on Saturday, 24 June 2017

The Lieutenant Governor’s Challenge starts at Checkpoint 5 of the Main Walk (Les Fontaines Tavern) and finishes at Checkpoint 9 (Le Braye Slip) – everyone running a checkpoint is there to offer each of you support and encouragement.

We will provide all walkers with an A4 map with important details about checkpoint opening hours and directions in walker packs that shall be posted during the first week of June. In the meantime, you can download a copy here: States Street Island Walk Map 2017.

We are finalising the route for 2017, but if you want to start some training walks, then check out the route sections below (based on 2016 route). You can also download a copy of the LG Walk Route Booklet [to follow], but please note some aspects may change due to road or coastal path improvements.
