Registration for the 2022 Manx Telecom Parish Walk has now opened with early bird entries available for only £40, discounted further to £35 for MT mobile customers.
The customer discount for this popular event will end on January 31 and the early bird offer will finish on March 31 when the standard entry fee of £50 will apply. Final entries must be made by May 8, and all registrations must be made online at http://www.parishwalk.com
Next year’s event will take place on Saturday, June 18 and will see the introduction of a number of environmental initiatives that organisers hope will lead to an increasingly-sustainable and lower-impact approach for the event.
These include ’Tree for T’, a donation of £5 towards a local conservation charity for every entrant who declines the traditional Parish Walk sports shirt.
As part of efforts to reduce plastic waste, a reusable compressible cup that can be easily carried and filled at the feed stations will be offered to walkers, and feed station partners will be encouraged to use vegware or cellulose items where possible.
Last year’s fanzone for spectators at Knockaloe Farm, Patrick, will also be making a comeback to help with road safety and to provide an enjoyable festival-style atmosphere for supporters.
