For those not on Facebook, here is a summary of the final reminders for Saturday’s event. If anyone requires transport to Ramsey, please use the form at HERE. There will be pick ups from Port Erin, Douglas, Onchan and Laxey. There should be plenty of space but please let us know by Thursday evening just in case!
Registration opens for the MMM at St Paul`s church hall at 7.00 am until 7.45 am. The registration for the Half is in the Station Rd car park commencing at 12.00 pm until 12.45 pm. Please have your safety gear ready for inspection at both registrations. All race numbers must be worn on the chest and be clearly visible at all Safety Controls and the finish. Any runner who retires from the race must report to the nearest marshal or contact the RO (his mobile number will be on the reverse of your check slip)
At road crossings please follow the marshal`s instructions. They do not have the authority to stop traffic so you may have to wait. Your safety is their main priority.
Please do not drop any litter on any part of the course. If you have rubbish to dispose of please give to one of the course marshal`s.
All support crews and followers are asked to park with caution. The Greeba Bridge area in particular has very restricted parking available and this is required by the Civil Defence team and the marshal`s. There is a water station positioned here for the competitors so really there is no need for support teams to stop here. The large car park at St John`s is not far away with ample parking. We would hope that all support crews and followers head for there instead.
