There is still time to register for the inaugural Harbour2Harbour walk from Castletown to Port Erin this Sunday, May 11.
People of all walking abilities are invited to participate in the event which is being sponsored by Friends Provident and will raise funds for Southern Communities Initiatives, Southern Befrienders and Sport Erin. The walk starts at 10am and follows a coastal route to Port Erin, through Pooil Vaaish, Gansey, Port St Mary and Cregneash. At the finish, at the former marine laboratory, there will be a hog roast, bouncy castle, tea, beer tents, ice-cream van and live music (the entire length of the breakwater will be closed to traffic between 9.30am and 6pm).
Participants between the ages of 10 and 18 first in their age group over the finish line will win an Up and Running goody bag. For details visit www.facebook.com/harbour2harbour
