The Parish Walk can be a young person's sport

In the early 60s the majority of walkers in the Parish Walk were in their early 20s.

There is now a revival with plenty of people under 30 completing the course. Liam Parker was the first under 30 to finish and at the age of 24 already has three sub 18 hour performances.

I don't have all the dates of birth for the walkers in the 60s but here is my list to date of performances by under 30 year olds.
