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 Thirdly, pesistent abuse of rules 1 and 2 will result in the forum being withdrawn.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

peel hill race

Hi, does anyone know what time the peel hill race starts at? Also where is signing on - is it at the end of the prom?

Re: peel hill race

Hi Kevin, according to the WAC website it is 6.15pm sign on for a 7pm start. No mention of where but usually it is at the old Creg Mallin Hotel carpark  - north end of the Prom.

Does anyone know if the No Rest for the Wicked Series is on or off  this year?. Clearly there is some confusion!

Re: peel hill race

This out and back course starts and finishes at the Creg Mallin Hotel on Peel Prom. The course is just shy of 4 miles and involves the ascent of Peel Hill towards Corrin’s Folly, round to the right of the Folly to a turning point behind it, and then back up towards the Folly, following the ascent route back down, bear right onto the gravel path then a downhill sprint back via the scallop slip and harbour road, over the swing bridge to the start line.
Signing on is from 6:15 pm for a 7pm start @ Creg Mallin Car Park area.
