What a great day in Peel. Was that the warmest Easter Saturday ever? Hopefully everyone has now made it safely back to Douglas.

A few bits of info about our day tomorrow.

We have the 5k races on Douglas Promenade. Start times are:
Women - 10.30
Men - 11.15
Race registration is open from 09.30 at the Cruise Desk in the Sea Terminal.
Don't forget to bring your number again - replacements will be charged at £5
After the races conclude there will be an informal social at the Outback with some chip butties being served.

This is the big one!!

Doors open at 19.00, we will aim to start the presentation just after 19.30
Admission is strictly by ticket only. Unfortunately, due to a very unsavoury incident in 2016, we have had to introduce a number of measures to prevent any re-occurance. All tickets are named and are for that person's personal use only. ID is required. Anyone who passes their ticket on to someone else may be blacklisted for future events.

We want everyone to have a fantastic time but please remember to drink responsibly.

Please note that no entries will be taken this evening - this is purely for those who have pre-entered to collect race packs.

Anyone unable to attend tonight can collect their packs from Rushen United FC clubhouse in Port Erin on Friday from 4.15pm to 6pm, where race entry for the Bushy's 10k will be available for anyone who has not already entered.

Separate arrangements for distribution of race packs will be made for the University groups - event organisers will be arranging to drop your race packs to the Sea Terminal when you arrive, or to your accommodation.
