Isle of Man 1998

Isle of Man Parish Walk and 100 miles
On 20th and 21st June 1998 the Parish Walk was held on the Isle of Man. This is an annual 85 miles walk around the island. For the Dutch walkers it proved to be a large problem just getting there. Because the Brotherhood of Centurions wanted to give the people of the IoM the chance to become Centurions the 85 mile walk was extended to 100 miles. Participants had to walk up and down the sea front of Douglas for the last 15 miles.
Participants started in Douglas and first walked to the south of the island. The target was to touch as many church gates (hence "Parish") as possible as fast as possible. The walk led along 17 churches all around the island. The finish was in Douglas. 500 people started of on Saturday and only 35 made it to the finish the next day.

The first 3 finishers were:
1    Richard Brown     15.59.44
2    Sandra Brown      16.16.36
3    Arie Boertjes        15.26.22100 miles

The first 85 miles
Doing another 15 miles on top of the first 85 proved to be too much to ask of most walkers. In the end there were only 11 people that finished within 24 hours, 4 of which were new Centurions.
The womens team won the team prize (Sandra, Marleen and Jill) and the "continental" team consisting of Arie, Luc and Hans came 2nd. So the ladies received the cup with a tag on it saying "First prize 100 miles men"!
