Seperate Mens and Womens race
Registration will open 90 minutes before race start and be in the Laxey Sailing Clubhouse (443837). This is on Tent Road, opposite the harbour (IM4 7DB). All competitors will need to attend registration. Race numbers will be allocated. Remember to bring 4 safety pins. A random portion of entrants will have their safety equipment checked (see Rules page).
Toilets and limited changing areas are available in the Clubhouse. There are public toilets in the small building on the inner harbour wall and at the far end of the Promenade.
Women's start 12noon, Mens start 1pm. Make sure you are at the start at least 10 minutes beforehand for a final safety briefing and numbers register.
There will be various race parking areas in Laxey (details to be announced). However these will be in demand, so if you can share lifts or used public transport that will be appreciated.
Return to Laxey
Trams will be available to bring runners (and supporters) back to Laxey. This is a fantastic part of island heritage straight out of Chigley. Built in 1895, it affords open views across the valley to the hills of your recent toils. (More information here). Your race number qualifies you for a free ride back to Laxey (you've earnt it!). You may have to wait for a tram to arrive, but hopefully no more than half an hour. The (warm) cafe will be open.
Alternatively you could jog back via Agneash, or arrange your own transport.
Refreshments and Awards
Free refreshments, hot drinks and beer(!!) will be available back at the Sailing Club
Details to be confirmed. But it's likely to involve live music, possibly a ceilidh, food, alcohol and definitely tales of the day.
