Amend smashes women's record by more than 13 minutes
Just over 500 competitors took part in the Microgaming Isle of Man Marathon and Half-Marathon over the weekend.
The event was held on a 13.2 mile course in the north of the Island - the race headquarters was at Ramsey Football Club's Ballacloan Stadium on the outskirts of Mooragh Park.
Phil Martin won the marathon with a time of 2:36:42; ahead of Paul Whitaker and Gordy Smith in second and third respectively.
Tim Kennedy was the winner in the half-marathon with a time just over one hour and 15 minutes (1:16:44).
Samantha Amend, who won the women's race, smashed the course record by 13 minutes and 38 seconds - or half a minute mile.
In finishing 5th, she equalled the best overall finish by a woman which had been posted by previous record holder, Rebecca Johnson in 2008.
