With all four of 2020’s Kiltwalks cancelled in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh and uncertainties surrounding the possibilty of massed events this year, Kiltwalk has announced a “Save the Date” for Scotland’s Virtual Kiltwalk Weekend in April 2021 and is now booking participants.
The new event will take place from Friday April 23 to Sunday 25 to allow for participant to walk, run or boogie virtually and safely and to raise funds for their favourite Scottish charity.
Taking part is simple – register now online – to support ME Research UK’s work and remember that an additional 50% to all qualifying donations will be added to sponsorship raised thanks to the Hunter Foundation.
Kiltwalk is promising the event will be very special and will include a number of Virtual surprises for participants. Kiltwalkers are invited to don a bit of tartan and complete any socially distanced challenge they wish, from walking, running, cycling, hopping, skipping or jumping on a trampoline, to raise funds for the charity of their choice.
Did we mention that Sir Tom Hunter’s ‘Hunter Foundation’ will add 50% to eligible funds raised?
Sir Tom noted; “The Kiltwalk kindness of Scots is truly unparalleled and at a time of most need we should offer hope and that’s why today we launch Scotland’s virtual Kiltwalk for the Spring. We know charities need real support right now and we also know our Kiltwalkers will step up to that fundraising challenge.
Organisers have also announced that the next mass participation event, Scotland’s Kiltwalk 2021, is (provisionally) set to go ahead in Glasgow on Sunday August 29th as Kiltwalk felt it was right to set a date to bring the Kiltwalk community back together again in late summer for one big Scottish walk.
