Scottish Widows Parish Walk in the Isle of Man has received a record 1,705 entries.
The 24-hour challenge is an 85-mile race-walk around the Isle of Man. It takes place on June 26-27, starting at 8am from the National Sports Centre in Douglas.
Teams from throughout the UK in the financial services sector will be competing to become the Scottish Widows Charity Challenge Champions 2010, in the event organised in partnership with Money Marketing. It is estimated 858 of the entrants are taking part in the event for the first time.
Clerical Medical International managing director Dean Waddingham says the record number of entries means a great deal of money will be raised for charity.
Waddingham says: “I understand that we have quite a few teams who are planning to go the distance. For novices, this is a big ask but that is the challenge we have thrown down and I have been delighted with how my banking colleagues have responded.”
