Thousands take part in Parish Walk on the Isle of Man

Thousands of people are putting their best foot forward for the 2014 Manx Telecom Parish Walk.

The walking race takes place on the Isle of Man each year and is the biggest walking event on the island.

The walk passes through every parish and covers a total distance of 85 miles (137 km).

Originally, walkers had to touch the door of each of the seventeen parish churches, but these days electronic timing chips are worn.

Participants have 24-hours to complete the walk.
