Sport, recreation and almost 7 and a half mile an hour walking for Gianni Epifani
Gianni Epifani, the former Island Games middle distance athlete, who also excelled at cycling, celebrates his 45th birthday today.
He entered the Manx Telecom Parish Walk in 2015 and although he "only" reached Jurby, as you would expect from the sports professional who works with a varied representation of the community, including Walk and Talk, for Manx Sports & Recreation, he does things properly.
On Saturday he smashed his 10km personal best with a time of 50 minutes and 35 seconds at the Manx Harriers open. If he carries on like this he could be a future Parish Walk winner.
The most important preparation for the Manx Telecom Parish Walk is to listen to advice from others. No better way than attending this tomorrow evening.
