Non veterans

It seems hard to believe that for more than half of the Parish Walk history veterans were only expected to walk to Peel - they were too old to walk further than that. It was the young, fit men who were supposed to walk the whole way.

Although it was not universally popular, I campaigned again veterans and women having a race to Peel as collectively they were making up the majority of the finishers.

There were only 57 finishers aged under 40 last year out of a total of 187:
