ARRANGEMENTS ON THE DAY

Registration / Entry on the day

 

Registration and Entry on the Day will open at 12.30pm in the Laxey Sailing Clubhouse (SC 443837). This is on Tent Road, opposite the harbour (IM4 7DB). All competitors will need to attend registration. Race numbers and punch strips will be allocated. Remember to bring 4 safety pins. All entrants will have their safety equipment checked (see Rules page).

 

Toilets

 

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.

 

Start

 

Make sure you are at the start by 1.25pm for a final safety briefing. The Race will start at 1.30pm.

 

Supporters

 

Supporters can journey to the summit of Snaefell by tram. Tickets Passes can be purchased at the station. Trams will leave Laxey tram station at 1.45 and 2pm, arriving at the summit at 2.15 and 2.30pm respectively.

 

Marshals and Checkpoints

 

The route will be partially marked. Until you reach moorland, stay on the track and footpath. Control points may not be marshalled. Remember to use the punch at the control point to staple your Punch Strip.

 

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. Awards will be presented at about 4.30pm.
