Ian Hodgkinson, the youngest ever Parish Walk winner at 21 in 1969, who lives in Australia unfortunately had a heart attack last week.
He told his Facebook friends; "Playing golf on Thursday in a Comp started getting crushing pains right through to my back. Thought it was a spasm and collapsed on the 9th in intensive care with Stents Then had a dramatic loss of blood pressure from the thinning agents Recovering well but have a massive haematoma on my thigh next go groin so can't walk May be out next Tuesday That's me ou the Parish".
Ian represented the Isle of Man at the Commonwealth Games in 1970 (Edinburgh) but after emigration took part in the 1974 version (Christchurch) for Australia. He was back on the Island last summer.
Photos of the 1969 start (copyright IMuseum) and finish (Ian's family collection) and at the 1970 Games (copyright unknown).
Everyone connected with the Manx Telecom Parish Walk wishes Ian a speedy recovery.
Meanwhile maybe some of the old Parish Walk followers will share their stories, memories and photos of Ian here.
Finally, 1969 is one of five years for which I don't have a programme. If anyone can let me have a copy of the 1967, 1969, 1973, 1988 or 1994 programmes, or better still can email a scan, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org ... See MoreSee Less
