The annual Santa Dash around Douglas will take place this lunchtime.
The event will get under way at 12.30pm from outside the headquarters of sponsors Isle of Man Bank, on Prospect Hill.
A slight detour from the normal route, due to ongoing roadworks on Victoria Street, will see the record entry of more than 200 runners reach the promenade from behind the RBS building via Villier’s Square.
They will then run the prom as far as the Gaiety, head left up Church Road and on to the finish line at the South Douglas Old Friends’ Association on Finch Road.
As the route is shorter this year, the times will not be considered as course records.
Signing-on takes place at the Old Friends’ building from midday.
