Parish Walk entries open this weekend

Entries for the 2019 Manx Telecom Parish Walk open this Saturday.

Discounts are available for those that plan ahead and sign-up early.

The Island’s most popular mass participation sporting event will start at 8am on Saturday, June 22nd at the NSC in Douglas.

Entry before January 31st costs £25 – walkers who are Manx Telecom mobile customers will also receive an additional £5 discount.

From February 1st to March 31st the fee is £30 - from April 1st until the final closing date on May 5th the fee will be £40.

All entries must be made online at www.parishwalk.com

Manx Telecom will again be providing the popular Pic2Go service for free.

Pic2Go uses clever software that identifies each walker by the barcode on their race number and allows official event photos to be automatically uploaded to the walker’s Facebook page.

It also has an option to automatically add comments and a link to a fundraising page, such as a JustGiving page, alongside photos.

It’s well-known that having relevant contextualised pictures of fundraising activities, accompanied by sponsorship requests, drives an increased level of donations and this means Pic2Go can help fundraisers attract additional sponsors for the charities they support.

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

Manx Telecom has been the Parish Walk’s title sponsor since 2012.
