With just two weeks to go until the Easter Athletics Festival, the organising committee urgently require your help and support. If you can help with any of the duties described below, please email Paul Jackson [email protected] or phone/text  07624 487873

For Friday evening’s 10K run in Port Erin we need lots ofhelp with marshalling duties around the course and at the start & finish areas. Marshals should report to Arnie Jacobs between 6pm & 6.30pm at the ‘Bikestyle’ van which will be parked close to The Bay Pub by the beach. Marshal bibs and full instructions will be given.


On Saturday morning we need a team of helpers to flag the course for the hill race. We will be driving the van part way up the headland slip road where a team of course markers will take over and work together to flag the course. Free lunch from the bar menu will be provided at the Creek Inn before the athletes arrive for the race. We shall then require marshals on the road & bridge sections of the course as well as on the headland. Report 1.30pm – 2pm to the race registration desk at the House of Manannan.


On Easter Sunday morning the action moves to Douglas Promenade for the 5K & Junior events Arnie Jacobs will again be on hand to drive the Bikestyle van along the Douglas Promenade walkway from about 9.15am. He will need one or two people with him to help put out a few cones and signs along the course and set up cones & tapes at the turning point. We also need marshals along the course and at the turning point from 10.00am until approx 12.15. Report to race registration desk for your bib and instructions from 9.30am.


Please do help if you can with any of the above tasks, as we really need to make the Festival safe and successful for our large numbers of local and visiting athletes. Also of note is that all marshals/helpers are eligible for a ticket to the Sunday night presentation & beer drinking competition at The Outback Sports Bar & Nightclub.

We  look forward to hearing from you!! Tel/Text Paul on 07624 487873
