The 7 Kingdoms: Isle of Man Adventure Race
Competitors race a 40km journey through spectacular Manx countryside and coastline, trail running and mountain biking, completing special stages along the way. (Although competitors may well get wet, there is NO swim stage.)
Each race has a different route, kept secret until competitors pick up their guide book and map the night before. Basic navigation is required to follow the unmarked route, dibbing into checkpoints along the way.
Embrace the freedom of adventure racing, the excitement, the minimum of rules and maximum fun! The fastest team (pairs & solo) to complete the route safely, wins.
Entry £60 per person, includes race pack, vest, food at finish & free camping.
