The Manx Telecom Parish Walk is a unique endurance challenge where competitors have 24 hours to complete the 85 mile route which takes in all 17 of the island's Parishes.
This took place on Saturday and the walkers have to pass by us at around the 35 mile mark on their way along the west coast road from Peel to Kirk Michael.
It was quite a warm, sunny day on Saturday and I am sure they would have been suffering a little by that point. We usually stand on the corner of the lane to cheer them on.
This year's winner made it across the finish line just before midnight with a time of 15.44.06
This gives you something to aim for next year. What an achievement it will be when you complete the walk. You could also raise money for a worthy cause such as The Alzheimer Society. Sign me up for £5 but remember that it is a "walk". Do not cheat by running some of the way like Liam Parker. Good luck!ReplyDelete
Well Mr P, I thought that you may like to participate as you are such an accomplished walker? I would be there at the corner with a reviving cool drink for you and my camera handy for that all important photo for the blog.Delete
That walk makes me tired just reading about it.ReplyDelete
I cannot imagine how you would feel at the end!Delete
