Organised by Manx Harriers, the Isle of Man Easter Festival of Running has become an annual ritual for multiple universities and UK clubs, with many long-standing rivalries and friendships.
The festival has four main parts – three of these involve running and the fourth is for unwinding after a hard weekend of racing.
