Our 50th Anniversary race in 2020 was cancelled due to the global Covid-19 pandemic. We therefore intend to celebrate our Anniversary in 2021, instead. Many of the 2020 entrants defered their entry to 2021, so places will be limited. Join us on what will be a fantastic day, celebrating fell racing on the Isle of Man for over half a century.

Please note that the deadline for getting a souvenir T-Shirt is midnight 7th March 2021. Entries after this date will receive a medal and pint, but no t-shirt. We need to get the order in! You also now have the choice to opt out of receiving a T-shirt and instead Manx Fell Runners will make a donation to Ardwhallan Outdoor Centre, on the island, who will use the money to plant a tree instead - simply choose 'plant me a tree' in the T-shirt size menu.

If you are coming by ferry, make sure you book via the link below as the SteamPacket has event specific offers.

The full marathon route is a point to point race from Ramsey in the North to Port Erin in the South, with the half marathon starting in St Johns and following the second part of the route. It is NOT, as the name suggests, a navigation 'Mountain Marathon' (such as the LAMM and OMM). The name is the traditional title from 1970, when the race was first contested.

There is a limited option for bag drops. Some check points provide water and the mid way check point at St John's will provide food - see website for details.

There will be post race massage available for donations.
