One of the island’s most popular walking events is returning in July and you can still register online.

Online registration for the Harbour2Harbour walk in July is still open, but only until Saturday. After that is a register on the day job.

Following the closure of the Southern Communities Initiative at “The Hub” in Port Erin last year, the Southern Nomads’ SPort Erin charity has stepped in to ensure that the highly popular Harbour2Harbour walk is back.

The walk first appeared in the island’s calendar in 2014 and, apart from a one-year pause due to Covid-19, it has become a well-attended event offering walkers of all ages and abilities the opportunity for a relaxed walk across the south of the Isle of Man.

This year the Harbour2Harbour walk is taking place a little later in the year, on Sunday July 3 starting at 12pm.

This year, it is the turn of Port Erin to be the starting point for the walk, which will be routed around the coastal path towards Port St Mary, where there will be a second starting point for those that would prefer to take a shorter excursion. From Port St Mary, the route will follow Gansey Bay to the bottom of Fischers Hill and through Scarlett, finishing in Castletown.

This year’s walk is being generously sponsored by Trident Trust and IFGL, with the aim of raising much-
needed funds for SPort Erin, which focuses on providing sporting facilities and opportunities for the
south of the Island. Registration can be made online.
