One of the highlights of the athletics year will take place on Saturday 7th March 2015 – The Ascot Hotel sponsored Manx Harriers Open Meeting, to be held on the perimeter road at the National Sports Centre in Douglas. The meeting attracts top-class race walkers from the UK, Ireland and sometimes beyond, as well as
locals. It is a great opportunity for local walkers to compete in
the same meeting as several world-class athletes, or even just to watch top
athletes in action and learn good race walking technique from the experts. The final event of the day is the popular10Km run held around the NSC perimeter roadway.
Social Evening and Awards Presentation
The Ascot Open Meeting after-race social evening will be held at the Ascot
Hotel on 7th March at 7.30pm. Tickets are £12.00 per person for choice of 4 hot
dishes, jacket potatoes, rice or chips and salad.
The presentation of Manx Harriers Annual Race Walking awards and the
