See you on 1 December

I promised myself that I would finish the website by the end of the week.
With a minute or so to spare, just time to say a public thank you to my wife (of nearly 24 years) Marie (above). Even I don't know how she puts up with me!
Thanks for your support and see you on 1 December....unless of course you change channels to

Other walks

Six times Parish Walk winner John Cannell in last year's Peel to Douglas Walk (ML)

Most of the race walking events are promoted by Manx Harriers.

If you only select one event, then make it the Empire Garage Peel to Douglas Walk. If you thought that the Parish Walk was wet, you should have been there for the Peel to Douglas last year!
The Isle of Man Veteran Athletes Club also organise a number of walking events and the pick of the bunch here is the Salclear Half Marathon which encourages entries from walkers as well as the runners.

End to End Walk

Adrian Cowin - working flat out on the End to End website! (ML)

The White & Healthy End to End Walk is the logical next step for parish walkers although there other walking events on the Isle of Man.

The End to End is organised by the Isle of Man Veteran Athletes Club and Adrian Cowin runs both the club website and a dedicated End to End site at:
