We've been contacted by a number of people disappointed that they won't be able to complete a 6 marathon-length kilted walk challenge this year because of The Kiltwalk's decision to merge the Perth and Dundee events (see previous post for details).

It's been really good to read about the enthusiasm for people to complete that 6 walk challenge, so much so that some people are talking about going ahead and doing it themselves.

As we're already going to have a lot of the infrastructure in place to manage a walk/run route on Saturday 8 August, we'd really welcome you to come and join us rather than go it alone. At the moment we're just looking at options for how we could manage this, but potentially it could mean using the half-marathon kilted walk route as an in/out route, walking from the finish line to the half-marathon start line and then back to the finish line.

We hope to be able to make an announcement about how this would work on Friday, but in the meantime it would really help if you emailed thekiltrun@gmail.com to let us know if you'd be interested in this.
