All set for record marathon

A record number of entrants are due to take part in the Microgaming Marathon and Half Marathon in the north of the Island today (Sunday).

One hundred and twenty-one have signed up for the full distance, 344 for the shorter one.

One of the organisers, Phil Motley, says there's an international flavour to the entry list, too, which they hope to increase further in the coming years:

Both races start and finish in Ramsey. The marathon gets under way at 9am, the half marathon at 9.30am.
