The forum

Welcome to the forum.  Please share information and your views on the sport in the Isle of Man with others. 

The forum has been operating in its present form since April 2004 and I particularly welcome comments from new contributors, whether you live on or off the Isle of Man, if you have an interest in Manx athletics.

Many people have used the forum to give thanks to the officials or their own supporters when they have enjoyed an event. Contrustive criticism is always welcome as an additional means of communication, although it is not intended to replace formal communication between clubs and other bodies and their members.

If you are unable to find information about an event on any of the Manx websites, then the forum is the best place to ask for help from other people. Whilst you can email me at  and I will do my best to point you in the right direction, the people who have the answer to your question are likely to visit the forum so it is better that you ask it here. is an independent site and I do not hold office within any of the five Manx clubs.

There are a few rules. Firstly, you should always use your real name as, apart from making people accountable for what they say, one of the objectives of the website is to make the sport friendly and appealing so please do not hide behind a nickname (anonymous entries will be deleted). Secondly, (it should go without saying) you must not insult or offend anyone. Thirdly, pesistent abuse of rules 1 and 2 will result in the forum being withdrawn.

Thanks for being sensible and I hope you continue to enjoy the forum and the sport.

Re: Manx gas cross country

Andy Fox discussed the cross country league at the recent IOMAA meeting, and it was agreed that the league would again consist of 5 rounds this winter, with the Championship round again scoring double points towards the league. Western AC and Northern AC are to host 2 rounds each and Manx Harriers 1 round in the coming season. The two Western AC events will be the first round and the Championships. Definite dates should be confirmed soon.

I think this is the gist of what was agreed - I'm sure Andy will let us know if any of the above is not correct!

Re: Manx gas cross country

That is correct Dave.

Round One - Oct - WAC
Round Two - Nov - NAC
Round Three - Late Nov/Early Dec - MH
Round Four - Late jan - WAC (Champs)
Round Five - Feb/Early March - NAC

We hope to hold the presentation in late March/Early April.

The final dates will be scheduled very soon. The venues for WAC and NAC events are the usual I think MH will probably go for Pulrose, however, Noble's is also an option.

Hope this helps.
