Each year the Isle of Man plays host to a number of events that celebrate everything from Manx culture and heritage, motorsport, music, food and drink and local theatre.
People with an interest in sports will enjoy famous events such as the TT races and Festival of Motorcycling. You can take part during your visit with one of the many competitions open to all, such as the Easter Festival of Running, or Tough Mann Adventure Challenge for the braver competitor. There is even the chance to watch, or possibly take part, in World Championship sports in the form of the Viking Longboat Race and Tin Bath Races.
