Salclear Isle of Man Marathon & Half Marathon '07

A record combined field of 305 finishers & new course records:-

Alan Postlethwaite (IoM Northern AC) knocked 11mins19secs off the V60+ record to set a new mark of 1:26:49. He also still holds the V45-49 & the V55-59 records.

Jean Snelling (York Knavesmire Harriers) set a new standard for the Ladies V70+ at 2:19:36. There was not a record in the age group previously.

For the first time we had the new official Vets cateory of Men 35-39 this year. So we have the initial values set by Michael Garrett (Manx Harriers) at 1:25:52 in the Half Marathon, & 3:05:15 by Mark Clague (Manx Harriers) in the Marathon. Mark also won the Isle of Man Championship.
