It's held every June in the Isle of Man and attracts up to 2,000 competitors of all ages and abilities. The majority are locals but there's an increasing number from overseas. Some are in it to win it, most take part as a personal challenge, to raise funds for charity, or to raise a smile by wearing fancy dress.
