RAMSEY GRAMMAR SCHOOL

DELIVERING EXCELLENCE FOR ALL

Good luck to the teaching/support staff who will be taking part in the 'Parish Walk' on Saturday 19th June. The Parish Walk is so called because the route passes through all of the island's seventeen parishes, covering a total distance of 85 miles. Originally, walkers had to touch the door of each of the seventeen parish churches, which are all still visited but nowadays electronic timing chips are worn. A time limit of 24 hours is given, and there are cut-off times for reaching each stage.
Only a small proportion of walkers are expected to complete the full distance each year. Walkers may drop out at any of the stages, which correspond to each parish, with an official time and distance. Definitely not an easy challenge!
