Mike Garrett on his way to victory

Alan Postlethwaite completed the Isle of Man Bank Peel to Douglas run on Monday evening 40 years after his first finish. After his debut in 1966 he didn't return until 1989 and has now run a total of 15 times. He best time was 1:04:14 in 1993. This year was a personal worst (1:14:39) but was a significant race after a series of career threatening injuries which ruled him out of the London Marathon this year. He planned to run in the Dave Phillips road races in Peel last night.

Tony Duncan (137) and Simon Lowe (113) were two more athletes who ran in the Peel to Douglas a little over a week after running in the London Marathon.












There were more finishers (57) than any year since 1990 when there were 71. Nearly half (26) of the field were newcomers. Some are featured in the pictures below for the first time on this site.
