Welcome to parishwalk.com
The 2014 Manx Telecom Parish Walk starts at the National Sports Centre, Douglas at 8 am on Saturday 21 June. You can enter online (entries are not refundable or transferrable) between 1 December and 11 May. You should find everything you need on this
site to plan the 85 mile walk (or a part of it) around each of the Isle of Man's 17 parishes.
From coaching advice on the training page, interactive support on the Facebook page, inspiration from featured walkers, motivation from the bloggers, memories of previous years through the photos, videos and archives it's all here alongside the statistics, rules and information about how the Manx Telecom Parish Walk is organised. There is also an announcements page where the organisers can publish updates
More than 30 years ago I began compiling statistics from the Parish Walk and other local athletics events. manxathletics.com was launched in 2000 and this
site in 2001. As it's my hobby, I pay the publication costs (proceeds from photo sales go to charity) and they are virtually free of adverts (I do promote the event sponsors). Manx Telecom's sponsorship enables
me to publish from around
the Parish Walk course for the whole 24 hours in a van provided by the organisers, Manx Harriers. Prior to that, however, I'll be adding to the static information about the Manx Telecom Parish Walk through my own blog, Facebook, Twitter and the features page.
