A marathon year ahead
All smiles in the Isle of Man. Fancy visiting the Isle of Man or, if you are local, avoiding the travel? Then follow this link to the Salclear Isle of Man Marathon on 14 August. Coverage of this site varies but there was extensive coverage in 2007 and 2009. I hope not to repeat it in 2011 as I was one of the first to enter!
Other marathons to tempt Manx runners

Not a level playing field. There are limits to what I can cover on this site and so I am not attempting to feature all of the marathons listed and certainly not all the dozens of road races that Manx athletes compete in off island. Please continue to report performances on the forum at manxathletics.info (golden rule: you must register with your real name and not a nickname). I’ll add the occasional feature here but if I don’t feature you its not because you are any less important.
