Above average number of finishers this year

Contrary to quite a few opinions, there were above average number of finishers this year.

9% of the starters made it to the finish compared to an average since 1974 of 8.1%.

Although last year there were "only 153" finishers compared to 163 the previous year, that was the record in percentage terms with 14% making it back to Douglas.

The other best years were 2006 and 1985 (12%), 1981 (10%) and there were 9% in 1989 and 1992.
