Congratulations go out to Helen Taylor and Danaa Callow on completing the Liverpool half marathon both setting personal best times for the distance, Helen Taylor finished 4th in her age group in a time of 01:36:51 and Danaa finished 34th in the same age group in a time of 01:53:39. The ladies say that the last 4ish miles were tough going running into a head wind, but they enjoyed the every minute of the race. Well done to all the other Manx runners who took part and for all the monies raised for their charities, in particular Northern AC runner Nikki Boyde who finished 1st in the same age group in a time of 01:26:12.

“Running a marathon is an experience that's difficult to put into words, how you describe the physical and mental challenges of the 26.2-mile race to those who have never ran one. Well finishing a marathon isn't just an athletic achievement. It's a state of mind; a state of mind that says anything is possible. The thirst you feel in your throat and lungs will be gone minutes after the race is over. The pain in your legs within days, but the memories of your finish will last with you forever. “
Geoff & Helen

No Rest for the Wicked
Ballacloan Stadium The 'No Rest for the Wicked' series now consists of six fabulous and different races in just 6 days around the beautiful Isle of Man. Whilst each race is run as an individual race, with its own prizes and presentation, No Rest for the Wicked competitors take part in one of two separate categories determined by their entry in either the Marathon or Half marathon.
Final placings in the competition are based on cumulative time from all six races entered, rather than points for positions, so no slacking just because you're in front of the next competitor!
Events start on Sunday August 10th with the Microgaming Isle of Man Marathon or Half-Marathon based in Ramsey and hosted by the IoM Veterans Athletes Club.
On the Monday the action moves to Peel where the Western Athletics Club host a short fell race on Peel Hill.
Tuesday sees a return visit to Ramsey for a 3 lap road race. This is the Northern 10K this time hosted by the Northern Athletics Club with signing on taking place at Ramsey Rugby Club beside Mooragh Park.
On Wednesday you are invited to take part in the Killer Mile, which is (almost) uphill all the way and hosted by the Manx Fell Runners Club. This year it will be held at Douglas Head.
On Thursday it's a return to the undulating roads around Foxdale and the The Anna Maria Cutillo Memorial 6 Miles, hosted by Manx Harriers.
Friday sees the final event take place, a trail run incorporating the Heritage Trail and once again hosted by the Western Athletics Club.
The final race is followed by a presentation at Peel Football Club and will include the awards for the series winners. There will also be exclusive T-shirts given to the first 15 who complete the Marathon series and the first 15 who complete the Half-Marathon series.
No Rest for the Wicked series is organised this year by:- Barry Moore email: email@example.com
