History:The Isle of Wight Marathon celebrated it’s 60th Anniversary in 2016, so 2020 will be the 64th running of this historic race.
It has been run continuously since 1957, making it the longest running (and one of the first to be held) in the U.K.
The inaugural event in 1957 was won by Ken Honney (Walton A.C.) in 2:35:51.
In 1964 Dale Grieg (Paisley A.C.) set a women’s world record (recognised by ARRS) of 3:27:25.
In 1976 the race was officially opened to women with the inaugural event won by A Lewis (Bromsgrove & Redditch A.C.) in 3:21:06. In 1978 the race hosted the inaugural UK Women’s Marathon Championship.
