Race Information

Race the Sun is a relay race like no other. The task is simple; starting at sun rise your team must complete a clockwise 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.

The exact route your team must follow is displayed on the route maps at the bottom of this page.

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.

Route Information

Please note Leg 9 and Leg 10 have been altered. Leg 9 now finishes at Eary Cushlin car park - please ensure you check the map and Leg 10 starts at Eary Cushlin car park and does not go to Niarbyl - please ensure you check the map.
