2022 Festival Roundup

A big thank you to everyone who joined us on the Isle of Man in 2022 for the 58th edition of the Isle of Man Easter Festival of Running. This year saw record visitor numbers, 334 in total, accounting for 64% of the total entry. After the frustrations of the past two years, it was all the more special to see our historic event return in style.

We hope everyone who visited the island this Easter had a memorable time, with many friendships, and of course rivalries almost certainly reignited. Roll on 2023!
