It's going to be a busy evening (Thursday) at the National Sports Centre ahead of Saturday's Clerical Medical Parish Walk.
The first of two signing-on sessions for the record entry of 1,598 takes place at the Manx Harriers Clubhouse between 5.30pm and 8.30pm. There is a second chance to register on Friday evening at the same venue and times.
The race itself will be started at the N.S.C. by 1971 winner Graham Young on Saturday morning at 8 o'clock.
