One of the joys of Alderney is the 30 miles of footpaths around the Island which provide glorious walking in all weathers. There are conducted walks, or you can just explore - there is an Ordnance Survey map in Puffins for our visitors.

In May there is a 10 mile running/walking race round the coastpath, in July a walking and running race to find the Goldsworthy Stones, and in September there is a very popular Half Marathon and 10 km race.
