That takes the total amount raised in the 16-year history of the event to well over £1 million, which has been distributed to 91 local charities.
As ever, all things went to plan – with 1,048 walkers heading off from the Elizabeth Terminal at 3 am on Saturday 24 June, and a record 618 finishing the 48.1 mile course.
Walk creator and co-ordinator Paul Owen said: ‘Every year we are amazed that the walkers just keep coming back for more.
As long as they want to walk we will be there to organise the event.
I think it reflects the great sense of Jersey’s community spirit and we are delighted that the funds raised have now passed the £1m mark.’ All the money raised this year will be shared between 14 local charities, with the three main ones, the Jersey Association for Youth and Friendship, the National Trust for Jersey Coastline Campaign and the Scott Gibaut Homes Trust, each receiving £20,000.
Mr Owen and Rotary de la Manche president Clive de la Cour said they wanted to thank everyone who took part, including checkpoint helpers, van drivers and supporters.
