£300 per team

The task is simple - starting in Peel, at sunrise (05:05), your team must complete a lap of the dramatic 100 mile island coastal footpath before the sun sets (21:25).

The course follows the 'Raad ny Foillan' our stunning coastal footpath circumventing our island with beautiful scenery, a range of terrains significant height gain.

The event is open to teams of up to 10 people (teams can consist of any number of runners up to maximum of 10), who each run one of the 10 sections, which vary in length, landscape and difficulty; ranging from 10.5km (6.5m) to 18.2km (12m) in distance.

The runners will take in a variety of terrains ranging from impressive sandy beaches; picturesque glens; estuaries and exposed cliff tops. The race requires strength, stamina and agility, as well as sheer determination.

Race the Sun is definitely not for the faint hearted.

Please note this is a self-supported event and participants will need to transport their own team members, and make sure that team mates arrive at transition points on time.
