Microgaming Isle of Man Marathon & Half Marathon website by Adrian Cowin

Continuing the build up to a week on Sunday who do you recognise from this 80s photo when the marathon started at Ronaldsway Aircraft Company who were the sponsor. Closest to the camera is Alistair Sutherland, the man with the handkerchief on his head is Vernon Thomas and I think it is Gordon Vale with the blue shoes. Standing in the background is Noel Cringle and possibly me in the blue shirt (but in that case who took the photo?). Answers to murray@manxathletics.com

 

Robbie Callister (above) may be best known for his five wins in the Parish Walk but he is also the most successful runner of all time with six victories, including five consecutive wins at an average of 2:35:40, in the Isle of Man Marathon.

The source of the table below is arrs.net/HP_IOMMa.htm

Does anyone have any corrections? Do you remember an Olympic marathon runner taking part? Why was the event not held on two occasions (if correct) and what year did it move from the south (Ronaldsway Aircraft Company start and finish) to Ramsey? email murray@manxathletics.com

Enter the Microgaming Marathon & Half Marathon

Its 30 years since Steve Kelly set the event record of 2:27:42 in the south of the Island (from Ronaldsway to Derbyhaven and back and then four laps of the course used for the Syd Quirk Half Marathon).  Although not pictured on a bike like Robbie, Steve had only just converted from a cyclist to a runner when this photo was taken in 1974 but he is actually race walking for the Ministry of Silly Walks team in the TT Relay Walk.

And here are some of the press cuttings from 1983 when it was as warm as it has been recently.
