Kiltwalk will make its return to the Capital on Sunday 18 September.

You have three walking distances to pick from with our Mighty Stride (24 miles), Big Stroll (14.6 miles) and Wee Wander (approx. 3.5 - 4.5 miles). Exact route locations and distances will be available soon on this page.

Every single penny raised for your charity, will be topped up by a HUGE 50%* thanks to the generosity of Sir Tom Hunter and The Hunter Foundation. That means if you raise £100 for your charity, they will receive £150!

Mighty Stride 8:30AM/9AM - 24 miles

Big Stroll 10:30AM/11AM - 13 miles

Wee Wander 12PM/12:30PM - 4 miles

*The Fundraising top up for this current year 1st January 2022 to 31st December 2022 is 50% of the funds raised by any individual participant subject to a maximum fundraising limit of £5000 per walker or donor. This is a cumulative limit per participant for Events in the above period. Donations received directly from a charity or a corporate entity (including match funding) are not eligible for the top-up.
