20 x 10

There was a time when Steve Gardner was mentioned in the preview for every Parish Walk. For he was the man who had completed more laps the course than anyone? How could you do 10 laps.

Well now there are 20 people who have reached that mark - Jock Waddington, Maureen Moffatt, Gordon Corran & Stella Corlett did so this year.

Stella Corlett was a stalwart of Boundary Harriers before they merged with Manx AC to form Manx Harriers in 1991, but only as a badminton player, fundraiser, supporter of husband Roy in the Parish Walk. I've known Stella for around 35 years and for the majority I never thought she would complete the lap once. "Its all your fault Murray" she said as she approached the finish for the 10th time - I can't remember why I get the blame but I'm used to it! (Photo Karen Kneale)

There are a few more with 9 finishes but of course Steve Gardner will always be the first to do it even if we thought he would be the last as well!
