The Big Stroll
Miles: 12

If 26 miles is a little too adventurous, how about heading out on our Big Stroll? Covering roughly half the distance you’ll still get a chance to stretch your legs as you travel across the city. Unlike at our other events, the Edinburgh Big Stroll sets off at the same time as the Mighty Stride - 9am. Registration is open from 8am.

The Wee Wander
Miles: 5

If covering the whole city of Edinburgh isn’t for you, but you still want to get involved why not sign up for our Wee Wander? Setting off from Gypsy Brae, the little over 5 mile trek will still get you back in time to enjoy the after party! The Wee Wander has a later start in Edinburgh at 1pm with registration open from 12pm.

If you’re thinking of taking part in one of the three Edinburgh legs of the Kiltwalk, why not take our 26 mile Mighty Stride (9am Start – Registration open from 8am) through our Capital on Sunday 18th September. If 26 miles is a little too adventurous, how about heading out on our Big Stroll (9am Start – Registration open from 8am)? Covering roughly half the distance you’ll still get a chance to stretch your legs as you travel across the city. Both walks kick start with a quick warm up and maybe a spot of breakfast if you so desire, you’ll set off at 9am bound for Edinburgh’s beautiful coastline.

Our Mighty Stride will have you passing through Gypsy Brae, Granton Harbour and Victoria Park, crossing the cobbles of Leith to then walk Edinburgh’s lovely Promenade. Then it’s back inland heading for Arthur’s Seat, and a glance at the Palace before hitting the home stretch to enjoy the final celebrations.

If covering the whole city of Edinburgh isn’t for you, but you still want to get involved why not sign up for our Wee Wander (1pm Start – Registration open from 12 noon) Setting off from Gypsy Brae, the little over 5 mile trek will still get you back in time to enjoy the after party!
