Garlic Festival to Include Marathon

Racing Zimmers NOT allowed this year
Whippinham Mayor Tom Shovel has announced that this year the Isle of Wight Marathon will be combined with the Isle of Wight Garlic Festival providing added excitement, "The marathon has grown like a clove of garlic with twice as many runners in it last year as there were a decade ago."

"We attribute the rise in popularity of the marathon with expanding the event to take place over a two week period in July and August to allow more elderly residents of the island to participate."

"Runners with zimmer frames are allowed, starting at the back of the pack, but outsized racing wheels are prohibited."
