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 Thirdly, pesistent abuse of rules 1 and 2 will result in the forum being withdrawn.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.

What a brilliant site thanks to those concerned for there hard work it was nice to see younger age groups included

Re: iomaa website

I agree, this is an excellent site and just what was required.

I like the pictures myself but then I'm biased!

Re: iomaa website

I would also like to congratulate those involved with this new site. As others have said, it is exactly what has been required for some time. A great deal of hard work has clearly gone into both setting the site up and collating all the information that is available on it.

Graham's site is also looking very good after a revamp and is well worth a look.

Re: iomaa website

Yes a very good site indeed.
There is just one point I would like to make though - slow down your home page flash-up photographs.
My attention span is significantly longer than a goldfish and I'd like to see who is being shown to me and where they have been photographed.
