Entries for the 2019 Manx Telecom Parish Walk open this Saturday, 1 December, with discounts available for competitors that sign up early.

Next year's walk will get underway at 8am on Saturday 22 June, at the NSC in Douglas, with the top racers looking to complete the 85-mile course across 17 parishes in under 24 hours.

Entry before the end of January costs £25, then £30 until the end of March and finally £40 up to the final closing date on 5 May.

Certificates will be awarded to all walkers who complete the full distance in under 24 hours.

There are also Corporate Team and Overall Team categories, and a competition for younger walkers aged 18 to 21 completing the 32.5 miles to Peel.

The 2018 event was won by Richard Gerrard, for the fifth time, after the Douglas man crossed the line in a time of 15:25:10.
