Touch of Tartan Half Marathon and 5K Kilt Run

The Perth 5k Kilt Run - where participants run a 5k route wearing a traditional kilt - is now in its fourth year, but thanks to the feedback from participants looking for a bigger challenge there is now the introduction of a half-marathon length route starting at Perth Aerodrome and finishing on the North Inch parkland in Perth. It's a mainly flat on and off road route set against a very pretty background, and rather than wearing a kilt, participants are being asked to don a touch of tartan.

Entry is now open at www.eventfull.biz

On the Saturday the events are based around our running and walking events including the 4th annual Perth 5k Kilt Run. There will also be a range of entertainment, music and fun for all the family throughout the day and into the evening. On Sunday the focus is Perth's traditional Highland Games event plus a great Touch of Tartan food event supported by local restaurants and eateries.
