Entries for the Manx Telecom Parish Walk are continuing to flow in, with some of the favourites making early declarations of their intention to compete.
Douglas hotelier Michael George has finished the 85-mile challenge six times and came third in 2007 and 2010.
And Maurice Bellando, who came home third in 2008, has also entered.
Several multiple finishers are included in the 399 who have registered so far, including Julian Thomas (11 times), John Cannell (8 times), Maureen Moffatt (6 times) and John Watterson (4 times).
Entries are at a higher level coming to the end of January than ever before.
The event gets under way at the National Sports Centre at 8am on Saturday 23rd June, and organisers are hoping the number of starters will top 2,012.
