Isle of Man Easter Festival of Running 2022

Three day running extravaganza


The Isle of Man Easter Festival of Running sponsored by IQEQ is a long-established three day running extravaganza that combines athletic and social activities in stunning surroundings. It will be held between the 15th and 17th April 2022.

The Festival attracts around 500 competitors each year, many of whom are visiting athletes. It is especially popular with University running clubs who make the annual pilgrimage across the Irish Sea to renew friendships and rivalries.


There are three races over the Festival period. The Festival opens on Good Friday evening with a scenic 10 kilometre road race around the streets of Port Erin and Port St Mary in the south of the Island. Male and female competitors run together in this race.  

Easter Saturday afternoon sees the action move to the west of the Island for the famous Peel Hill races that take in the summit of Corrin's Folly. The route starts and finishes on the road but is mainly on grass. The afternoon starts with the men's race followed by the three mile women's race.

The final races take place on Douglas Promenade on Easter Sunday morning with the women's five kilometre road race, followed by the men's five kilometre road race.

The Festival concludes on Easter Sunday evening with the prize presentation and party. This includes the legendary beer drinking races, which for many are the highlight of the weekend!
