Parish Walk entries opening next week

Entries for next years Parish Walk will open early next week.

The event from Manx Telecom is one of the major community events each year, and sees hundreds of residents get their walking shoes on to take on all or part of an 85-mile course around the Isle of Man.

MT says entries will start being taken from Tuesday, December 1, with the occasion itself scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 19, 2021.

Early-bird entries, available between December 1 and January 31, 2021, have a discounted fee of £35 - this rises to £40 for entries from February 1 with the full £50 entry fee applied from April 1 until midnight on Sunday, May 16, 2021.

MT adds following the cancellation of the 2020 Parish Walk due to Covid-19 restrictions, the 2021 event already has 500 participants from people who chose to roll their 2020 entry forward and organisers expect the numbers participating to be high.

Parish Walk Race Director, Ray Cox, says: "The organising committee was extremely disappointed to cancel the 2020 Parish Walk in June. 

We are committed to having the Manx Telecom Parish Walk on June 19th 2021, come what may and planning is already at an advanced stage. We have used the down time to bring to fruition plans for new developments for the event next year and we anticipate a bumper entry."

Anyone looking to register from next week must do so online at www.parishwalk.com.
