Parish Walk: Deadline for discounted entry approaching

Mon, 20 Mar 2023

The last date for discounted entries to this year’s Manx Telecom Parish Walk is Friday 31st March.

From 1st April 2023, the entry fee will increase from £40 to £50 and will remain at this price until the final closing date for entries on 7th May 2023.

Over 740 walkers have already registered to take part in this year’s event which takes place on Saturday 24th June, starting as usual at 8am from the NSC.

As in 2022, entrants have the option to forego the traditional Manx Telecom Parish Walk T-shirt in lieu of a donation of £5 to the Isle of Man Woodland Trust. Over £1,300 was donated to the Isle of Man Woodland Trust last year through this initiative and walkers this year are also being given the option of accepting the T-shirt and making a separate donation towards the Trust’s work in planting trees around the Island.

The race organisers continue to work hard to minimise the impact of the event on the local environment and, working with sustainability partners IFGL, it is hoped their ambition of a zero single use plastic can be achieved in 2023. This will also be supported by Mannmade Group who will once again be providing reusable Speed Cups which can be easily carried by competitors and filled at the water stations en route.

Every year, walkers in the event raise huge sums of money for many different charities and good causes of their own choice. In recognition of the help they have received in the past, Hospice, Manx Heart Foundation and the Roy Castle Lung Foundation will all be providing volunteers for the feed stations and marshalling this year.

All entries must be made online at https://www.parishwalk.com/  where you can also find more information about the event as well as hints and tips from previous winners.
