Thanks to generous sponsorship from Mann Made Group, Race the Sun is now in its 7th year and has raised over £40,000. This money will go directly to supporting vulnerable children and young people on the Isle of Man through our Mobex project. Why not take part in 2014 and help us try to take this amount to over £50,000?

Exciting News

Race Information

In 2014 to keep the event fresh and fun, we will be reversing the direction of the race to anticlockwise around the Island. The checkpoints will remain in the same place as in 2013. For example leg one will now be Peel to Niarbyl.

Race the Sun is a relay race like no other. The task is simple; starting at sun rise your team must complete a lap of the dramatic 100 mile Island coastal footpath before the sun sets. Split into 10 demanding sections, the course follows the 

 

Raad ny Foillan, a stunning coastal footpath with significant height gain.

 You will journey along impressive sandy beaches; picturesque glens; estuaries and exposed cliff tops. Requiring strength, stamina and agility, it’s definitely not for the faint-hearted.

   

 

Teams can consist of any number of runners up of a maximum of 10.This is a self-supported event. Participants are responsible for providing and transporting their own persons and are responsible for arriving at transition points on time. Please allow ample time to locate the exact

transition point.

Fundraising

To encourage you to get fundraising, a prestigious  “Golden Shoe” will be a awarded to the team that raises the most money. This will be presented on the evening of Race the Sun so to qualify your sponsorship forms will needed to be handed in before this. The Children’s Centre supports Children, Young People and Families across the Isle of Man. To find more information about the services we provide,
