2024 Race the Sun taking place today

Teams tackling 100-mile route in aid of The Children's Centre

A mammoth running event is taking place across the Isle of Man today all in aid of a local cause.

The 2024 Race the Sun is seeing teams cover a 100-mile route in relay groups which got underway at Peel Promenade shortly after 5am (18 May).

Squads must complete the challenge - which covers the coastal 'Raad ny Foillan' path - before the sun sets tonight at 9.22pm.

The aim of the event is to raise funds for The Children's Centre - anyone not involved directly in the race can also provide support with a donation.
