Sunday 9 August 2020

As the Isle of Man Government has removed all Covid-19 Gatherings and Social Distancing restrictions we are delighted to announce that the Marathon and Half-Marathon will go ahead.

However, we realise that this will be difficult for entrants from off-island as all arrivals have to quarantine for 2 weeks due to the Isle of Man borders being closed. 

 We have options for those who have already entered our races and live off-island.  The options are:

  1. Please note that all refunds will be by cheque in sterling,
  2. Donate your entry fee to a local charity – Hospice Isle of Man,
  3. Do nothing! If we do not hear from you we will defer your entry to the 2021 event. The date is yet to be confirmed but would be at the same time of year.

If you wish to accept one of the above offers, please email iomvaclub@yahoo.co.uk by 24 July 2020 giving your name and your option preference.

Regards         Isle of Man Veteran Athletes’ Club
