Manx Telecom Parish Walk

Entries for the 2014 Manx Telecom Parish Walk which takes place on Saturday June 21 are now open.  Go to for both individual and team entries - there will be new team trophies for the 2014 race specifically for younger walkers aged 18 to 21.


Entry costs £30 for all participants in all categories, but Manx Telecom mobile customers will receive a £5 discount if they enter before January 31. All those who enter will receive a commemorative Manx Telecom Parish Walk technical tee-shirt and goodie bag.


One of the best in its 100 year history was how Manx Telecom Parish Walk Race Director Ray Cox described the 2013 centenary event – and few who took part would disagree. Michael George was a popular winner after many years of coming close to victory, but he was pushed all the way by second placed Richard Gerrard and Jock Waddington who was third. George’s time of 14h 44m 49s was the third fastest in the all-time list.


Janice Quirk won the women’s race and finished sixth in the overall standings. Her time of 16h 16m 39s was the third fastest ever by a woman. Defending champion Sue Biggart was second, and Maureen Moffatt third.
