Taking place on Saturday 18th June, the 2022 Manx Telecom Parish Walk will see the introduction of a number of environmental initiatives that organisers hope will lead to an increasingly sustainable and lower impact approach for the event. These include “Tree for T”, a donation of £5 towards a conservation charity on the Island for every entrant who declines the traditional Parish Walk sports shirt.
As part of efforts to reduce plastic waste, a reusable compressible cup that can be easily carried and filled at the feed stations will be offered to walkers and feed station partners will be encouraged to use veg ware or cellulose items where possible.
Last year’s Fanzone for spectators at Knockaloe Farm, Patrick, will also be making a comeback to help with road safety and to provide an enjoyable festival-style atmosphere for supporters.
Manx Telecom’s CEO Gary Lamb said, “It is always a pleasure to announce the opening of entries for the Manx Telecom Parish Walk as we know just how much so many people look forward to this key event in the Island’s sporting and social calendar.
“We are delighted at the introduction of initiatives to make this a “greener” Parish Walk. Although the event is well-recognised for the amount of money it raises for local charities and good causes, it is right to have an environmental focus as well, especially with a route that takes in so much of the Island’s natural landscape.”
