Athletics: High hopes for landmark Easter Festival of Running

This year's event will be the 60th edition

There are high hopes that this year's edition of a popular running competition on the Isle of Man next month could be the biggest yet.

The Easter Festival of Running returns from 29-31 March in what will be the landmark 60th iteration of the event.

In an occasion which attracts hundreds of entries from both on and off-Island, last year saw its biggest attendance yet with in excess of 500 participants.

Local athletics correspondent, Dave Griffiths explains why he thinks the festival can get such high demand:

Advance entries for the event are open until Saturday, 16 March - details are available HERE.
