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!

The final race is followed by a presentation at TBA 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.


I hope to see you on the Isle of Man in 2019 because, when it comes to running, there really is
