Thanks to generous sponsorship from Mann Made Group, Race the Sun is now in its 8th year and has raised over £80,000. This money will go directly to supporting vulnerable children and young people in the Isle of Man through our many projects. Why not join us in 2017 as we aim to take this amount to over £100,000?

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.
