Watterson, Chairman of Isle of Man Veteran Athletes’ Club, comments: “We
appreciate that athletes come from all over the world to compete in this race
and that’s why we aim to deliver the most memorable of events. We must be doing
something right as people seem to come back year after year! We look forward to
welcoming all athletes back in 2014 as well as hopefully seeing some new faces

Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming, adds: “With it being the start of a new
year, it really is perfect timing to sign up and to have a goal in sight for
training. Last year’s event was a pleasure to be a part off – the Marathon
committee and the volunteers did such a great job in organising and executing
the event. I’m sure it will be just as fantastic this year, if not more!”
