Travel to the Isle of Man

NB: Weather cannot be guaranteed!

The Island is well connected and can be reached by both air and sea from a number of ports across the UK and Ireland.

Travelling by sea you will arrive in the capital, Douglas, from where easy access is available to all locations across the Island. Those arriving by air will arrive at Ronaldsway airport near the southern town of Castletown.

The race starts in the northern town of Ramsey and finishes in Port Erin so most visitors choose to stay in either Ramsey, Port Erin or Douglas. Transport on race day will be provided to the race start and bags can be transported to the finish for you. The post race presentation will be held in the Cherry Orchard hotel near the race finish in Port Erin. Rooms are available here should you wish to make a night of it! (
