The Hampden Kiltwalk 2013
Walking For Scotland's Children
Apr 21 2013
The Kiltwalk is a Scottish charity (SCIO) that organises sponsored walking events to raise money to support Scottish children's charities.
Some of Scotland's leading children's charities are our core partners, taking a share of the event proceeds.
Many other children's charities around Scotland also benefit for grants and donations when they are nominated by the people that do the walks.
Anyone can take part - men, women, children, old and young, fit and...less fit. We always have 3 distances to choose from:
26 miles, 13 miles and 10 km
Each distance receives the same Kiltwalk treatment: bagpipes, celebrities, regular refreshements and entertainment and an emotional and uplifting welcome at the finishing line.
